Maya Stovall at home with Quaint

I'm working on my next Essay'd essay, a profile of artist/anthropologist Maya Stovall, who performs dances in front of Detroit liquor stores before interviewing spectators about their experience of art and the city. Look for the essay in a couple of weeks, but for now, here's a shot of Stovall in the loft/studio she shares with her husband, sculptor and musician Todd "Quaint" Stovall. The sculptures are Quaint's, installed for a recent exhibition in their cavernous space -- a converted historic bank building on Gratiot in the McDougall-Hunt neighborhood.
