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:
