Wyandotte Patch stopped into the River's Edge Gallery to find out what's the most interesting piece on display.
The most interesting piece at Wyandotte's River's Edge Gallery showcases, perhaps, Detroit's most famous musician — Kid Rock. The painting, High Rock, by Downriver native Bill Morrison, depicts Kid Rock in dark sunglasses and dark clothes beneath a bottle cap marked, "High Rock Dry." Gallery director Jeremy Hansen selected the painting as the most interesting in the gallery because of the piece's pop-culture representation and for the artist who painted the image. Morrison was born in Lincoln Park and has worked on several projects seen by people all over the world including dozens of movie posters for Walt Disney Pictures animated films, according to the River's Edge website.

The River's Edge Gallery in Wyandotte is using an art installation as a fundraiser for the American Red Cross.
An art installation at the River's Edge Gallery that was created to shed light on the foreclosure crisis and state of the economy has turned into a way to raise money for the American Red Cross. The artwork, a makeshift house created from an old porch, is outside of the gallery. The house, created by Jeremy E. Hansen and Ryan Weiss, is purposely without a door. They titled it "All Are Welcome, We Just Can't Get In." "The lack of a door echoes the title," Hansen said. "Everyone is welcome to the prospect of owning a home, they just can't seem to find the door." The artists planned to dismantle the piece is late September. However, Hurricane Sandy's sudden arrival on the east coast chaned those plans. "Given the recent evens on the east …
