The Ann Arbor Arts Center staff asked us to share this list of special events that will be happening next month.

June’s events skew young just in time for summer as teens and college students are off for the summer and looking for some cool things to do.

Whether it’s urban art that “pops up” out of nowhere, remixes of familiar images in surprising ways that range from satire to social commentary, and event an opportunity to talk to comic artists there’s something for everyone.

If you would like to comment on the Ann Arbor Arts Center program you’re most looking forward to in June, please visit us at www.facebook.com/WeLoveAnnArborMedia and leave a comment.

Thank you to Katherine Pertuso for providing the information in this post.
