To the End of the Earth

September 8 – October 14, 2017


The vast American landscape has shaped this nation’s identity, but we have exploited our natural resources to the brink of environmental disaster. To the End of the Earth brings together artists who seek to improve our bleak ecological reality through artwork that opposes political policy, presents objective data analysis, and conveys compelling emotional narratives.

Top of the World Art Auction: DAM Gala 3

October 20, 2017


We are happy to announce the Top of the World Art Auction: DAM Gala 3, the third annual fundraiser to support our mission. We hope that you can join us on Friday, October 20, 7-10 p.m., on the 32nd floor of the Guardian Building in downtown Detroit.

DAM’s annual fundraising gala revolves around a special art exhibition that honors our history of supporting artists at different stages of their careers. Ten artists will create original works of art for a one-night exhibition and art auction hosted by WXYZ reporter Heather Catallo. Ms. Catallo will auction off works of art, and the proceeds will benefit DAM and its artists. This year, DAM has partnered with the Mint Artists Guild, a Detroit non-profit run by artists and entrepreneurs to benefit young creatives in and near Detroit. The final auction item of the night will be a special work of art from one of Mint’s young, up-and-coming artists. The evening also includes live music, great food, and a silent auction.

Featured Artists: Bryant Tillman, Christine Bossler, Larry Cressman, Janet Kelman, Eric Wheeler, Rashuan Rucker, Kyle Irving, Robbie Aaron, Marceline Mason, Guest Artist from the Mint Artists Guild
