A digital art exhibition featuring over 55 galleries, institutions and collectives from Detroit will launch later this month. The week-long initiative called Art Mile will showcase the city’s vibrant and diverse arts community through digital installations, artwork sales, virtual museum tours, artist studio visits, film screenings, musical performances and other live events. Organized by Reyes | Finn and Cultural Counsel in partnership with Red Bull Arts, Art Mile gives the public free access to the city’s local galleries, museums and artist-run spaces.

Programming highlights range from a presentation of works of art made by Detroit’s art workers called ArtWork to a series of empty museum tours featuring alternative cultural spaces like outdoor art environment Dabls Mbad African Bead Museum. A livestreamed opening night celebration featuring a DJ set by Detroit-based electronic music producer Omar-S will kick off Art Mile. Other participants include Detroit Artists Market, M Contemporary Art and Simone deSousa Gallery.

In addition to the various public programs, collaborations and artist editions, Art Mile will launch a fundraising campaign for 482Forward, Inside Out Detroit and Living Arts. These local non-profit organizations are dedicated to providing Detroit youth with access to visual, performing and literary arts education.

“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 Founding Partner Terese Reyes. “Detroit’s arts community has become the heart of a city bursting with creativity—that’s something worth protecting.”

Art Mile will take place from July 29 to August 5. For more information on programming, head to Art Mile’s website.
