Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Scarab Club, built in 1928, is a vivid example of proto-modern, 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 photography and sculpture.
Friendly atmosphere, excellent exhibitions expecially the Charles McGee and Al Hinton exhibit and the Studio Tenant exhibition in the historic lounge. Great rental space too! The staff were extremely knowledgeable and the studio tenants were accomodating.
