Art
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.

The arts are happening in Detroit, and they stay hot year round.
