In an effort to support metro Detroit’s vibrant art scene, local gallery Reyes Finn and Cultural Counsel, a New York consultancy focused on contemporary art, design, and architecture, are partnering with Red Bull Arts to launch a new digital exhibition called Art Mile.
Opening on July 29, the interactive website will feature more than 55 galleries, museums, and artist-run spaces, and allow visitors to view and buy artwork. Participating organizations, which are given free access to the platform, include Dark Room Detroit, Detroit Artist Market, Northville Art House, Dabls Mbad African Bead Museum, Cinema Detroit, Cranbrook Museum, M Contemporary Art, and home décor shop Nora.
Art Mile’s mission is to provide local galleries, institutional nonprofits, museums, and artist-run spaces with a forum to strengthen the creative community. “Art Mile aims to continue our city’s long tradition of banding together in resilience, recovery, and collective dreaming, whether in periods of economic crisis or prosperity,” says Terese Reyes, a founding partner of Reyes Finn. “Detroit’s arts community has become the heart of a city bursting with creativity — that’s something worth protecting.”
