Detroit is set to celebrate art, music, and cannabis culture with "The pARTy," a non-profit music and arts festival scheduled for April 18-20th at the Tangent Gallery. This event, organized by the metro Detroit art collective, The Gallery Society, aims to offer a fusion of interactive music and art exhibitions, educational workshops, and other immersive creative experiences to its attendees.

The festival's core mission is to support Michigan artists financially through its partnership with the non-profit organization Art In Session. The proceeds from the event will be allocated to various initiatives aimed at nurturing the local art community. These initiatives include the establishment of a non-profit art gallery and community workshop space in metro Detroit, along with the provision of educational grants for local artists.

The lineup for the festival boasts nearly 50 artists, muralists, and musical acts, featuring notable names such as The Alejo, Eccentric Danny, Martina Sanroman, Burg Ink, and Nathan Karinen, the founder of Art Night. The event will not only showcase an array of artistic talents but also foster community engagement and creative expression among participants.

In preparation for the festival, Art In Session is organizing a three-day private workshop series from April 16-18th, dedicated to the creative and professional development of the artists participating in The pARTy and selected VIP guests. This summit underscores the festival's commitment to enhancing the skills and wellbeing of artists within the community.

Moreover, the festival agenda includes a series of workshops accessible to all attendees, designed to impart valuable art and wellbeing skills. These workshops cover a diverse range of topics, from mental health for creatives and ecstatic dance to painting tutorials and yoga flows, ensuring a holistic and enriching festival experience.

The pARTy is proudly sponsored by prominent Michigan cannabis companies such as New Standard, Element, and butter, highlighting the state's vibrant cannabis culture in conjunction with art and music. The festival offers a unique opportunity to celebrate 4/20 in a manner that underscores the synergistic relationship between cannabis, art, music, and community engagement.

The culmination of The pARTy on April 20th will feature a fashion show spotlighting local designers and accompanied by music from DJ Raedy Lex. This finale promises to be a vibrant celebration of local fashion, music, and artistic talent, starting at 9:45 p.m.

A prelude to the main event, a "pre-pARTy" was held on March 8th, acting as a fundraiser for the festival. It featured an Art Night Detroit takeover with live artists, dance music, and open discussions on the festival's impact on the local artistic community.
