Founded in 2011 by Adarsh Aplhons, CNN Hero and former ProjectArt Executive Director, ProjectArt now serves nine cities across the United States: Harlem, Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, and San Francisco.
The Detroit branch started in 2016 with the support of Founding Board member Lisa Applebaum, the DPL and the Skillman Foundation.
ProjectArt Detroit serves the art community in many ways with after-school programs (through seven of the DPL branches), artist roundtables, online art classes, a Teen Apprenticeship Program, an art residency program, and more community work in the city.
“ProjectArt is committed to empowering youth and artists through tuition-free art classes and artist residencies in partnership with the Detroit Public Library. With your support of our Detroit program, we can continue to thrive, bringing hundreds of hours of in-person classes and residencies back to our libraries in 2021. We are incredibly grateful for your contribution and your celebration of ProjectArt Detroit’s exciting year ahead.”From ProjectArt
