McArthur Binion (MFA Painting 1973) is opening the solo exhibition, Self:Portraits, at Library Street Collective in Detroit on Dec. 10, 2022. The exhibition will run through Feb. 22, 2023. On display will be a selection of paintings from Binion’s “Self:Portrait” series, six of which were created in 2016, and seven of which were created over the last few months. Read more about the exhibition here.

In 2019, Binion established the Modern Ancient Brown Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports the intersection between the visual and literary arts in the Detroit community through an artist grant campaign and residency program. The foundation’s headquarters will open in 2023 in Detroit’s East Village. Binion will be donating 100% of his proceeds from the exhibition to Modern Ancient Brown; Library Street Collective will be donating a substantial portion of its proceeds to the further development of the public skatepark at the Shepherd, designed by Binion and legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk. The skatepark is spearheaded by the gallery and in partnership with Jefferson East, Inc, a neighborhood non-profit organization that serves low-income populations on the City’s east side and five historic bordering neighborhoods.
