We stopped in the beautiful city of Farmington Hills, Michigan, which was a recommendation of one of our artist friends in New York City last time we spotted her at the Guggenheim. As we informed many people we were travelling through Michigan, she recommended Farmington Hills because of the affluence of the city, and the great art galleries that resided within. She was not wrong.
We found a great gallery called Art Leaders that has locations all over Michigan, and we were pleased to see that they not only had pieces of art, but they also were a full service art shop, complete with decor, framing, and much more.
After spending about two hours there, and speaking with one of the managers, we got more information on the art scene that we had not heard about in Michigan. We heard about a couple of galleries that we needed to visit in Novi, and a couple in Royal Oak, which is another affluent part of Michigan, not far from Farmington Hills.
After only a couple cities, we feel like we may need a bit more time in Michigan, so we’re going to extend our trip a by 5 days so we can see all the great galleries we need to.
We actually are headed over to Ann Arbor as well, and are stopping at the Barton Dam, which is pictured below.
Check back for more updates soon.
