    Fascinating Art Deco tour! We learned about the historical timeline of Detroit architecture and the design movements leading up to Art Deco and the design movements to present day. Michael Farrell made each moment significant and highly enjoyable! My fellow artists - make sure you don't miss this tour in the future. Yes, we will schedule this event again!!
