DETROIT TO NYC
PLAYGROUND DETROIT is a creative platform that connects Detroits current talent in the visual arts and music scene with exposure and collaboration opportunities in New York City.
PLAYGROUND DETROIT facilitates this through our online blog, events, and exhibitions, acting as a connector by engaging the NYC creative scene and redefining the stereotypes of Detroit. We provide the artists and musicians opportunities to exchange ideas and dialogue about the future roles of their cities in the arts world.
Our first NYC exhibition, 212/313, will explore 10 featured artists from Detroit and the context surrounding their work within the city. How does living, working, and playing in Detroit affect them? What kind of similarities and differences does Detroit & NYC have?
