Chronicling Contemporary Art in Detroit

Essay'd publishes short, illustrated essays about contemporary Detroit artists on a regular basis. The first 30 essays, originally published online, were published in book form by Wayne State University Press in August 2016, and a second volume is forthcoming in August of 2017. Online, the project will reach 100 essays in early 2018 - an unprecedented survey of Detroit art. Essay'd has also mounted exhibitions, writing workshops, readings, and artist talks at institutions throughout the Metro Detroit area.
