Stairwell Gallery

1981 25th Street
Detroit MI 48216

Like Baby Grand, this is a gallery run out of someone's house. But unlike Baby Grand, the Stairwell Gallery has a much clearer demarcation between the residence and the gallery, with a padlocked door preventing even the most absentminded visitor from wandering into a private area.

The gallery is accessed from the rear porch. A door opens onto a stairwell that leads up to a small room. Artwork is displayed in both the small room and in the stairwell (hence the gallery's name).

In another important difference from Baby Grand, the Stairwell Gallery has regularly scheduled gallery hours, specifically, Saturdays from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.; these hours were confirmed by a visit in 2016. However, a 2017 visit suggests gallery hours have been eliminated and now it is only at opening receptions and by appointment that one can come to the gallery.

In March or April 2017, the owner painted the floors of the room and stairwell white, and for the 90% Off exhibit provided visitors with shoe coverings.

Sign indicating the way to the Stairwell Gallery

This sign pointed you from the street to the back porch, from which you can enter the gallery. But, at some point prior to April 28, 2018, it was removed.
