Compuware To Host Three "Design Happenings" As Part Of The Detroit Design Festival

DETROIT, Sept. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation, (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced its participation in the Detroit Design Festival (DDF), a series of city-wide cultural events that will take place Wednesday, September 19, through Sunday, September 23. The DDF will feature exhibits, studio tours, panel and roundtable discussions, lectures, product and fashion shows, retail happenings and design battles that will occur at many Detroit locations.

"The DDF is a unique opportunity for us to engage with many creative and entrepreneurial projects and organizations all over the city in a concentrated moment and place," said Meg Heeres, Art Curator and Community Art and Garden Program Manager at Compuware. Compuware will sponsor three "design happenings" during the festival:

Working Title: An exhibition that seeks to investigate the state of work and our working environments with a sense of curiosity, good design, innovation and humor. The Compuware-curated exhibition will feature many local artists and designers as well as works from the Compuware Art Collection and an installation from Haworth, a Michigan-based design firm and furniture manufacturer. Housed in Compuware's pop-up exhibition space at 123 Monroe St., Working Title runs from September 19 to October 10. The exhibition is open to the public on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and features an opening reception on September 20 from 4 – 9 p.m. and a conversation with Kelly Deines, head of design at Rossetti on the September 21 at noon.

Detroit Stories: A series of film vignettes screened at Lafayette Greens, Compuware's urban garden, at the intersection of Shelby and Michigan Avenue. The vignettes feature stories of real people living and working in Detroit. It is an ongoing project to create a digital archive of honest revelations and heartfelt recollections; Detroit Stories is a growing, collective voice of an authentic city. Detroit Stories will be shown at the Lafayette Greens on Friday, September 21 throughout the day on a small screen and projected at night from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.

#awakening: Dance Film Music Festival: A Community Dance Intervention led by Detroit Dance Project and blackhackerspace art + design collective. This event in Lafayette Greens invites everyone – including families and children – to take part in impromptu music and dancing led by Detroit-based artists. The event's dances will be filmed September 19 and 20 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Evening music and dance performances take place at Tangent Gallery from 8 p.m. – 2 a.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. A dance film premier featuring the highlights of the DDF experience and panel discussion moderated by Maya Stovall will be held on the final day of DDF, Sunday, September 23, at the Tangent Gallery at 715 E. Milwaukee St. in Detroit from 3 - 5 p.m.

Compuware's involvement with, and support of, the DDF extends the company's long history of encouraging innovation in design and the arts. Compuware's focus on making technology make a difference extends beyond its market leading products and services. From holding employee art exhibitions to developing the Lafayette Greens urban garden and forming partnerships with the College for Creative Studies and other Detroit art communities, Compuware encourages the exploration of innovative ideas that have the potential to impact businesses, people and communities in profound ways.
