Formerly a fundraiser for Christ Church Grosse Pointe, Art and Antiques has found a new home in the historic Alger estate, where proceeds will now support the preservation and restoration of our historic mansion.

Held over four days, Art and Antiques features a series of events with something for every varietal of art and décor lover. The show opens with a formal Preview Party, followed two days later by an outdoor bash — our Antiques & ARTfest. General admission opens between the two premiere events and continues through the weekend.

“Our guests can visit all their favorite dealers from across the country, including many of those who frequented the show at Christ Church Grosse Pointe,” said Joyce Russell, Director of Institutional Advancement at The War Memorial. A wide array of vendors will be represented — all professionally displayed within the beautiful ambiance of the historic Alger House and ballroom.

ArtAndAntiques AlgerEstate

Before becoming The War Memorial, the beautiful estate at 32 Lake Shore Drive was the family home of Russell A. Alger, Jr.

Designed by Charles A. Platt and built in 1910, the Italian Renaissance home was named The Moorings.

After Russell’s death in 1930, the Alger family sought a way for the house to be used to improve the quality of life in the community. It found its first public use in 1936 as a branch museum of the Detroit Institute of Arts, and was later deeded to our own Grosse Pointe War Memorial Association.

Proceeds from Art and Antiques will be used to support the preservation, restoration, and enhancement of the Alger estate.

 A very special thank you to our sponsors
