Artists like Tyree Guyton, who’s been finding objects and attaching them to decaying homes along Heidelberg Street, are using the now blank and dilapidated city as their canvas.
And institutional art hubs like the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and the Detroit Institute of Arts and organizations like Art Detroit, along with a plethora of galleries, are boosting their efforts to support the vibrant scene.
The literary arts scene is taking off, too. Currently, a writer’s residency program “Write a House” is taking applications for writers to live in a renovated home for free.
We are thrilled to partner with Cranbrook Academy of Art for the extraordinary seven month project “Nick Cave: Here Hear.” MOCAD will host the Dance Labs portion of this massive project at the end of July and beginning of August. Stay tuned for more information and announcements of dates, times, and dancers.
