Hummus Heartland is a collection of stories about Detroit’s ubiquitous Middle-Eastern food culture. Radio producer Zak Rosen and photographer Marvin Shaouni join forces to tell intimate stories united by the iconic, delicious food staple – hummus.

Thousands of metro Detroiters trace their descent to the Middle East. Prepare to experience the sounds, images, reflections, and recipes that unite our diverse region.

The exhibition is currently installed at Bank Suey in Hamtramck, only blocks away from where some of the stories take place.
