Art Mile is a city-wide digital art exhibition that champions Detroit's vibrant and diverse arts community by promoting public programs and online acquisitions. Organized by Reyes | Finn and Cultural Counsel in partnership with Red Bull Arts, Art Mile launched its inaugural festival in the summer of 2020, providing over 60 Detroit galleries, institutional non-profits, museums, and artist-run spaces with free access to Art Mile’s exhibition platform, with sales made directly through exhibitors on an inquiry basis.
Held June 14 – July 11, 2021, Art Mile's second edition evolved from being one week long to a full month of exhibitions and events, featuring a new curatorial and programming partnership with world renowned not-for-profit organization, Independent Curators International (ICI). A special exhibition organized by the inaugural Art Mile Curatorial Fellow was also presented. Art Mile also hosted an open call for local galleries and institutions to participate, including the debut of Art Mile Editions—a new exhibition category showcasing independent zines and printed matter.
Art Mile will return in 2023 with a hybrid model of in-person and online programming. Please subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates.
