Light Up Livernois

Light up Livernois returns to celebrate design and creativity on the historic Avenue of Fashion. Makers, artists and designers from Detroit are collaborating with local small businesses to shop, dine and explore the various ways design surrounds us in our everyday lives. Join us and experience design through open studios, fashion vignettes, musical performances, and small business highlights. Now more than ever, it is important to support the businesses during construction. In order to navigate the area properly, we will have a shuttle available and encourage walking groups to mobilize efforts.

This event is an official part of the 2019 Month of Design program.
