PLAYGROUND DETROIT is a creative agency and gallery based in Detroit, MI established in 2012.
PLAYGROUND DETROIT’s mission is to support and develop opportunities both for creative professionals, artists and residents in order to enhance and sustain Detroit’s creative economy. Our work is focused on artwork sales and commissions, artist development, art advocacy, professional development and community programming.
We are creators, risk takers, and accelerators. We consider artists as professionals and gauge our success by the successes of those we work with to develop strong careers. We believe in the importance of the arts and the sacred role it plays in the future of Detroit. We work to help creatives with their unique vision and assist in executing their pursuits and dreams.
Our work educates and exposes key partners such as media, organizations, policy makers and citizens about the importance of arts, culture, and arts education as well as enhances regional creative industries through entrepreneurship, artist development and outreach in order to support the region’s creative sector. As a result PLAYGROUND DETROIT and our partners further drive local creative economies and connect residents, artists, collectors, businesses, neighborhoods and local communities through arts and culture.
