Concrete Canvas

NOW OPEN in Center Stage in the Allesee Gallery of Culture

The history of public art in Detroit is an ever-unfolding story, shaped by the ebb and flow of social, political, and cultural currents. It serves as a testament to the power of creativity to connect people, provoke thought, and transform public spaces into vibrant expressions of the human experience.

Curated in partnership with Preservation Detroit, this exhibition takes a look at the significant cultural legacy, vibrant history, dynamic present, and boundless future of the public art treasures that adorn Detroit’s urban landscape. From public art environments to murals, statues, sculptures, fountains, and more, this exhibition explores and highlights local artists, iconic public works, collections, and cultural landmarks.
