What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Annual Exhibition Program

DAM produces a full schedule of exhibitions featuring new and established artists from Detroit and the Metro region.  Juried shows, curated exhibitions, and market-style shows provide a wide variety of opportunities for artists to show and sell their work.  Artists take a 2/3 commission on art sales, meaning more dollars out in the community directly to local artists.  DAM also provides the community with an inviting and accessible place to learn about and purchase art.

Population(s) Served

DAM's Elements sales gallery offers a wide array of original art by local artists, at all price points to encourage regular purchases and collecting.  Jewelry, painting, ceramics, glass, fibers, photography and sculpture are all found in the Elements Gallery, providing unique options for gifts or collecting.

Population(s) Served

DAM’s annual art auction gala revolves around a special art exhibition that honors our history of supporting artists at different stages of their careers. We assemble a group of established and emerging area artists to create original works of art for a one-night art auction, hosted by a local celebrity. Proceeds from the night benefit the artists and DAM. The evening features live music, a silent auction, great food and drinks, and a festive atmosphere.

Population(s) Served

The DAM Art Placement Program assists local businesses to install local art.  DAM works with these clients to chose art, and coordinates the installation with the artists and clients.  Artists are paid a 10% commission for the use of their work for 6-month installments.  Clients can chose to renew their art or change it every six months.  The artwork shown is for sale and can be purchased by the client or their customers and visitors.  The DAM Art Placement Program provides key visibility for artists, and develops an appreciation and awareness of local art for the client.

Population(s) Served

DAM’s Website features a searchable Artists Database that showcases our members who are artists. As a benefit of their DAM membership, artists can customize their profile, refresh images and information, and tag search keys. Visitor browse artists and search for particular media or themes. The DAM Artists Database provides artists with important technical support and visibility on the Internet. The databasae is also a very useful tool to assist businesses and individuals looking to purchase art or participate in the Art Placement program.
