 Hot DAM! the Detroit Artists Market Annual

Detroit Artists Market invites DAM members and Michigan artists to submit works of all media formats to Hot DAM! the Detroit Artists Market Annual, juried by local Detroit artist Mario Moore. As a painter, Moore’s work focuses on the personal, social and political implications of our segregated society. Presenting stories of his own life and those of friends and family, Moore weaves in multiple references to history, art, politics and literature to complete his narrative. Recently, he was artist-in-residence at Duke University. He has also been awarded the prestigious Princeton Hodder Fellowship at Princeton University and has participated as an artist-in-residence at Knox College, Fountainhead and the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. Hot DAM! runs through August 4 – September 2, 2023.
