The visual arts are an integral part of the history of the organization and its artistic legacy. Homecoming I and II, (scheduled September 28 through November 26, 2022) are the works of artists here in Detroit, whose works have made an impact on the global arts community and beyond. Homecoming is the brainchild of Lina C. Stephens and the Visual Arts team of the Carr Center who reached out to many of the artists to invite them back to participate in the exhibit. Though it was a challenging task to uncover some of the artists from the past 30 years, the team through extensive social media outreach and community engagement, found more than 150 artists who were invited to participate. Part I of the Homecoming includes Pamela Alexander, Christopher Batten, Kaelin Belmer, Halima Afi Cassells, Kimberly Harden, Jacqueline Edwards Lane, Diamante Lavendar, Richard Lewis, William Mandela Matthews, Steven Mealy, Sabrina Nelson, Onzie D. Norman, Senghor Reid, Dawud Shabazz, Tony Shopinski, Tristan Slade, and Crystal Woodard. “Homecoming celebrates visual artists from Detroit whose work is seen around the world, and many of these artists have called the Carr Center their studio, classroom, exhibition hall, or home,” says Lina C. Stephens, the Carr Center’s Curator. “After nearly 30 years of robust Detroit-centered and nationally recognized visual arts programming, the Carr Center’s family of visual artists is vast, diverse, and exceedingly talented. Is it only fitting that the ‘Home for the Arts in Detroit’ calls on its family to celebrate not only the accomplishment of the organization’s 30 years of excellence but the accomplishments of those who help make the past 30 years historic.”The Carr Center Gallery
