Visiting Artists for Detroit School of Arts

Via University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

Goal

To support artistic instruction by professional artists from key organizations such as Sphinx, the Mosaic Theater, the Michigan Opera and others at the Detroit School of Arts

A coalition – including the University of Michigan, the Detroit Arts Corridor Organization, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Institute of Arts, Michigan Opera Theatre, Sphinx, Mosaic Youth Theatre, among others and the school district – is working to position the Detroit School of Arts as one of the nation’s preeminent arts high schools. Knight funding will help forward that mission, by bringing professional artists from these key organizations into the classrooms, after school and during the summer, as mentors and role models. The project will strengthen the pipeline of talented local artists building the vibrant local arts community.
