Arts


New ideas and forward-thinking actions are all part of the arts in the D. Visual artists, including painters, sculptors, designers, architects; and musicians working in nearly every genre (or sub-genre) under the sun and moon are here doing their funky thing.

All provide the foundation for multiple healthy scenes. Much of what we do here is recognized on a global scale. And sometimes the world comes to us. Just tap that cute girl or guy on the shoulder at Hamtramck's Public Pool next time you're there and ask if they're speaking Danish or Dutch. It was Danish last time we did that. The arts are happening in Detroit, and they stay hot year round.
