Saks Fifth Avenue’s Art of Detroit

There may have been heavy competition downtown the same night (Lions preseason game and Eminem concert in Comerica Park), but more than 300 fashionable Detroiters-at-heart ($75 ticket) still cruised to Saks Fifth Avenue for the soiree benefiting the College for Creative Studies. Painted flats displaying Detroit landmarks like the Marshall Fredericks’ “Spirit of Detroit” sculpture accented the store and CCS alum Ben Sharkey had a huge presence at the event. Both the invitation and the event poster art above the registration table (see Photo Gallery) were his creations. Plus, his mellow vocals wafted throughout the second floor most of the evening. Glass artist April Wagner’s work also made a colorful statement (see Photo Gallery) on the second floor.
