Fresh off new works for the Electric Forrest Festival (June 2014), commissioned by Red Bull, Detroit artist Michelle Tanguay works all hours of the night in preparation for her new show, scheduled for September. A classically trained fine artist, Ms. Tanguay has explored several directions since graduating from the famed College of Creative Studies (CCS), pulling inspiration from the city, electronic music and, among other things, the studio space she works from with friend, mentor and fellow artist, Camilo Pardo. The two artists did recently take a break from the brushes, however, long enough to host a ‘Boxed Wine Tasting Party’. The intimate affair had Detroit’s more creative sect sampling some of the world’s finest grape – housed in cardboard containers.
Here’s to you, Ms. Tanguay!
