Live Coal Gallery

80 Clairmount
Detroit MI 48202

5029 Trumbull Street
Detroit MI 48208

Opening receptions were usually on Fridays. Gallery hours at 6513 Woodward are for now on Wednesdays through Saturdays opening at 11:00 a.m. each of those days, closing at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 6:00 p.m. on Fridays and 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

For the first two years, the gallery was located in the Woodbridge neighborhood, close to the intersection of Trumbull and Warren. However, an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance waiver for the gallery's Trumbull location expired in September 2015. Owner Yvette Rock had still hoped to make the original location ADA-compliant in 2016, although moving to a new location that is already ADA-compliant looked for a time more likely than before.

Live Coal Gallery was reorganized as Live Coal Arts Mobile, and debuted in that form on April 29, 2016. Then, later that year on December 17, Live Coal Gallery quietly opened in a New Center location, and I believed that would be the new permanent location, but it is clear now that it was just another temporary location. It appears all the temporary locations will be in Detroit, but a suburban temporary location can't be ruled out.

In September 2018, Live Coal announced the Red Children's Art Museum, to open October 10 at 80 Clairmount, in Detroit. It appears that the gallery will not continue as such.

At various locations

On December 15, 2015, at Woodbridge Pub, Live Coal had a special event to raise funds for the re-opening. I have not kept track of exhibits at the Mobile.
