About the Detroit Artists Market
     Founded in 1932 to support young artists during the Great Depression, the Detroit Artists Market (DAM) has been a leader in Detroit's contemporary art movement for 80 years. More than 3,300 artists have been shown at DAM through the decades, and today we are one of the most active and engaging galleries in Detroit.
     With a variety of exhibitions, special events and public programs, DAM brings artists, audiences and collectors together in a welcoming and dynamic space. Exhibitions and programs at the Detroit Artists Market are made possible with the generous support of The Kresge Foundation, the Erb Family Foundation, the Hudson-Webber Foundation, and with additional support from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts, Gyro Creative and our DAM members.
     Detroit Artists Market is located at 4719 Woodward Avenue, in the Detroit Cultural Center, just three blocks south of the Detroit Institute of Art and one block north of MOCAD.  Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and all shows and exhibitions are free and open to the public.
