From the Press Release:
After last year's series of successful talks by Essay'd artists, we are excited to host them again this year at the Anton Art Center!
Kicking off this year's series, Andy Malone will be speaking about his interactive sculptures that often function as games, while conveying deeper themes and making serious topics more approachable. Andy's whimsical machines, board games and drawings have been shown in over thirty exhibitions since 1995, most notably in the Selecti show (2002) at Detroit Artist Market (chosen by Whitney curator Lawrence Rinder). Andy holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Detroit Mercy, and has worked in the exhibit and custom furniture industry for over sixteen years.

Essay'd is an online writing project by Dennis Alan Nawrocki, Steve Panton, Matthew Piper and friends, that publishes short, illustrated essays about contemporary Detroit artists on a regular basis. If it continues at its current pace, it will reach 100 artists by early 2018 – an unprecedented survey of Detroit art. The first 30 essays were published in print form by Wayne State University Press in August 2016, and a second volume is scheduled for publication in August 2017.
