Galleries in Detroit

Although Cass Cafe and Great Lakes Coffee show art in ex­hib­its of fixed or roughly fixed duration, I consider both of those places to be res­tau­rants that show art as a non-primary activity, and therefore they don't count as art gal­leries.

However, Cass Cafe is more serious about art exhibitions than perhaps any other res­tau­rant in Detroit, with new ex­hib­its announced in the Art Detroit Now news­let­ter on a fairly reg­u­lar basis. The ad­dress for Cass Cafe is 4620 Cass.

Motor City Brewing Works some­times has little one-night solo shows on Wednes­days. The address is 470 W. Canfield.

Another place, south of Cass Cafe and Motor City Brewing Works, is the Detroit Ship­ping Company. I think it opened in 2018. There have been art ex­hib­its there almost the whole time it's been open. The address is 474 Peter­boro.

After moving from Ferndale to Detroit, The Butcher's Daughter moved to New York.

Kunsthalle Detroit is believed to be permanently closed.

I don't remember exactly when the Marygrove College Art Gallery closed. Or if it never did really close. The address is 8425 W. McNichols.

Inner State Gallery closed on December 16, 2017. The owners might start a new gallery with a new name at a new location.

City Sculpture is more correctly considered to be a museum rather than a gallery.

There is quite a bit of a connection between Birmingham and Detroit: Like Wasserman Projects, Reyes Projects could also be said to have moved from Birmingham to Detroit.
