The event combined fine, literary and performing arts.
More than 150 friends and supporters of Kadima’s arts program, Creative Expressions, gathered on Sept. 19 for the annual Frame of Mind Arts Benefit and Showcase on the rooftop of the Detroit Opera House.
The event combined fine, literary and performing arts. A gallery-like art display featured member paintings, drawings, photography and literary works, including a comic book. Member-led entertainment included an interactive drum circle and drum duets, along with a musical performance with DSO musicians and a singer who had worked under the tutorage of Michigan Opera Theatre professionals.
Frame of Mind raised $85,000 to support Creative Expressions, which provides therapeutic, educational and experiential creative arts programming for adults living with mental health challenges.
The event chairs were Barbara and Michael Kratchman, who planned the event along with a 10-member volunteer Frame of Mind Committee and Kadima staff.
