FIRE HORSES ART AUCTION

LEGENDARY FIRE HORSES OF DETROIT ART AUCTION: DAM GALA 2
The Detroit Artists Market (DAM) places artists center stage and pays tribute to a bygone era with the Legendary Fire Horses of Detroit Art Auction. DAM artists team up to create original works of art that form a special one-night art auction. The evening also includes live music, great food and drink, and a silent auction featuring products and services from Detroit area organizations. All proceeds benefit DAM and its artists. The fundraiser takes place at the Hook and Ladder House #5, in Eastern Market. In the late 1800s, these grounds were home to the stables, track, and medical facility that trained and cared for an elite group of Detroit fire horses. The alarm sounded and these horses would burst to their harnesses and pull a three-ton steamer down to the blaze. They were heroes. The steam fire engine era came to an end on April 10, 1922. On this day, fifty thousand cheering and weeping Detroiters gathered along Woodward Avenue to celebrate the final run of the horse-drawn steamers. Join us for the Legendary Fire Horses of Detroit Art Auction: DAM Gala 2, a special evening of nostalgia, art, and celebration.

Bruce Giffin and Bowen Kline, Jeanne Bieri and Denzel Parks, Sharon Que and Darice Cobb, Elizabeth Youngblood and Steven Padilla, James Puntigam and Joya Rush-Keli, Erik and Israel Nordin, Emily Jane Wood and Alexander Buzzalini
