Description

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Scarab Club, built in 1928, is a vivid example of protomodern, Arts and Crafts architecture. The boxy brick building sits alone among parking lots east of the Detroit Institute of Arts in the Cultural Center. It is a private club with a gallery and frequent shows open to the public. The club was founded in 1910 as the Hopkin Club, named after Detroit's first renowned painter, Bob Hopkin. The second-floor lounge has ceiling beams signed by local and national artists including Diego Rivera and Norman Rockwell. The art displayed is highly eclectic. Annual member shows include everything from photography and sculpture to poetry readings and concerts.
