Detroit Photo Legends Descend on DIA to View New Exhibition

In the Company of Artists opened at the DIA yesterday and the de Salle gallery saw a veritable a-list of Detroit-area photo legends taking in the exhibition. Bill Rauhauser was one of the first into the gallery where a number of his own portraits of artists are on view including a very dapper self portrait by Bill from the 1950s.

Oakland Community College photo guru Rob Kangas was on hand to see the exhibition along with Michelle Andonian and legendary architectural photographer Balthazar Korab.  Our general public seemed to enjoy the exhibition as well – the first permanent collection exhibition to grace the galleries in nearly seven years!

    Folks,

    I am sorry I missed this event.
    I am a former student and photoartist of Bill Rauhauser @CCS.
    I was also Michelle Andonian’s ‘First’ photography Teacher @ Holy Redeemer HS..
    I am still an art instructor in the Birmingham Schools – right now at West Maple.
    Please pass this note on to these wonderful friends of my past – if you can.

    My best,

    Pete Manschot
