Recent data shows Gen Xers and millennials are taking more of an interest in classic cars. Muscle cars are the most desirable, with the Camaro, Corvette, and Mustang topping the list. Despite the onset of autonomous vehicles, younger generations still appreciate going for a drive.   “There’s an adage in Detroit,” writes author Tom Glatch in The Art of Mopar. “You can sell an old man a young man’s car but you can never sell a young man an old man’s car.” Glatch describes how Dodge was an old ma...

So Now Detroit’s Cool Again, Who Gets To Call Themselves A Detroit Artist?

“I mean if you are a Cranbrook student or AIR, you are not a Detroit artist. If your studio practice is based in Pontiac, you are not a Detroit artist.

Lurie's satire shows how the critical fetish for outsider artists has a persistent emphasis: a hyperfocus on “misshapen yet perverse ideas” about class, race, education, and...
