Join us on August 2 for the first Detroit tour stop of the public artwork In Search of the Truth (The Truth Booth) at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Created as a Cause Collective project by artists Ryan Alexiev, Jim Ricks, Will Sylvester and Hank Willis Thomas, "The Truth Booth" is a portable, inflatable video recording studio in the shape of a giant speech bubble. The booth's interior is equipped to record and compile video responses by people as they complete the sentence: “The Truth Is…”This is the second stop on a two-week tour of the Metro Detroit and Flint area. See the full schedule here: http://bit.ly/29PE49C The recorded results of this project will be used to create an ambitious 60-foot-wide video installation that will open at Cranbrook Art Museum in November of 2016.Sponsored in part by the Knight Foundation, Applebaum Family Compass Fund, the National Endowment for the Arts and Maryanne Mott
