NOW OPEN in the Robert M. Dossin Gallery

River Recreation and Lakeside Leisure

In the boating world, Detroit has long been one of the hubs for many aspects of recreational maritime. You might not view mega-yachts as seen in the Mediterranean or big-wave surfing like on the west coast, but for everything from product development, competitive events, education, and a nautical social life, the Metropolitan Detroit region is respected the world over. To many, this is an unknown part of our rich culture.

This exhibition will feature activity on the Detroit River, four seasons a year. Rowing, paddling, kayaking, sailing, fishing, ice boating, swimming and much more will be showcased along with the individuals and communities who participate.
