PLAYGROUND DETROIT is a catalyst empowering Detroit’s emerging artists in visual, sound and design mediums.
We provide creative entrepreneurs with tools and resources required for success by establishing a connection between the
creative community of Detroit and the rest of the world. PLAYGROUND DETROIT was founded in 2011 by Paulina Petkoski,
Executive Director and Samantha ‘Banks’ Schefman, Deputy Director, with a focus of connecting Detroit and New York City.
By utilizing these young womens’ various networks from their respective careers in both international Fashion and
the Arts industries, they support their peers and encourage economic growth of their hometown, Detroit.
The Playground is the private exhibition space which supports our e-commerce platform.
It is where we further engage our growing audience, collectors experience the artwork firsthand
and a meeting place to nurture relationships with PLAYGROUND DETROIT artist members.
