November 1–4, 2018

Held over four days, our second annual Art and Antiques features a series of events with something for every varietal of art and décor lover.

High-end dealers from across the country will join forces with nationally- and regionally-known speakers to provide an unforgettable experience – all in support of The War Memorial’s Patriot Initiative Fund and the preservation and restoration of the historic Alger Estate, the foundation of our beautiful campus.

 

A Family Home. A Community Jewel.

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.

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