Danya Ensing, Managing Director: danya@artdetroitnow.com

In 2006, 11 individuals representing a cross-section of contemporary art interests in Metro-Detroit started meeting regularly to consider how our community might work together to increase awareness of the great art, artists and art venues in the Tri-County area. In eight years, this ad hoc committee has established a mission, a long-term vision, and a record of accomplishments.


90+ organizations now collaborate on exhibitions, programs and events:

Detroit Gallery Guide 


Detroit Art Review


Inspired by nighttime arts festivals from around the world, DLECTRICITY, Detroit’s new nighttime, contemporary light art festival, hosts local, national and international artists whose cutting edge works of art and installations illuminate the historic architecture of Midtown each fall. Produced by Midtown Detroit, Inc. and Art Detroit Now.
