Thirty-five artists, two bands, and a fashion show are the draws for "You Can't Touch a Ghost," a one-night art show Jan. 19 at Galleri 2987 in Detroit's Rivertown. The event will raise money for Alternatives for Girls, a nonprofit that provides help, prevention, assistance, shelter and outreach to at-risk girls and young women in the Detroit area.

The event runs from 6-10 p.m. and has a $15 entrance fee, which covers the show, performances, hors d'oeuvres and open bar. All the art will be for sale, with one custom piece created for the event sold via live auction, and a percentage donated to the charity. 

"The restorative powers of art and music are undeniable," wrote curator Anna van Schaap in a press release. "In creating an experience that engages all the senses with art, performance, music, food and delights, it is our aim to wholly envelop the attendees in an immersive evening, elevating the restorative powers of culture, art, and the celebration of life, while raising awareness and money for those most in need."

More information, including artists in the show, is available on this event page
