Without 'u' there is no 'us'
Having arts culture is pivotal to a healthy community and culture makes us who we are. It is an expression of our legacy, our present and our future. We believe art has the power to transform public spaces, neighborhoods, and commercial corridors.
The DNA project aim is to connect artist and community members through the activation and beautification of vacant storefronts, empty lots and newly created public spaces. Artists across a range of mediums from visual, sculpture, dance, jazz and theater will create and install art commissioned by the community for the community.
We comprised individuals to serve on our jury panel who are dedicated to making 48221 a better place to live. This panel is made up of art professionals, community leaders and business owners representing a wide range of disciplines, cultural perspectives, and most importantly - Detroit roots.
We thank all of our jurors for contributing their time to ensure our art offerings are unique and engaging.
