The Scarab Club in Detroit features a historic, sculpted Pewabic medallion designed by architect William Buck Stratton above its main entrance. Founded in 1907, it
was a gathering place for artists and art enthusiasts. It was only fitting that Pewabic tile was commissioned for the exterior of the building in the late 1920s considering Pewabic Co-Founder Mary Chase Perry’s strong presence in the art and sculpture scene of Detroit.

Years later, the scarab came to symbolize renewal, transformation, and resilience throughout our establishment as a non-profit. This beetle-like faience is based on one of our historic tile designs from the 1920s.
