Detroit and the Artistic Types

Detroit has seen so much change over the past few decades, but one thing that has never budged is the city’s willingness to join together and try new things — especially when it comes to art. Detroit’s fascinating art scene provides makers with the freedom to try avant-garde projects that have never been attempted before, all with the support of a tight-knit community of local creatives. Detroit art projects run the gamut from innovative murals to immersive experiences to public pieces like the Heidelberg Project, a colorful reclamation of abandoned homes. With Detroit’s affordable rent, plentiful studio space, a growing local economy and awe-inspiring architecture, artists of all stripes will feel right at home.
