With an education from an Art Institutes school, imagine what you could create.
Push Your Creativity To The Next Level
Whether it’s the revving of an engine or the rhythmic beat of a Motown classic, the sounds of Michigan’s largest city, more than any single image, have come to define it. The legacies of Henry Ford and Berry Gordy have cemented Detroit as one of America’s premiere cities, despite the oft reported decline of the once thriving and developing economy. Now the city, having recently experienced a renaissance of sorts, is also offering another dimension to its identity: a city rich in diverse artists. This should come as no surprise given the fact that one of the nation’s first art schools, the College for Creative Studies, is nestled in the heart of Detroit’s cultural center. Additionally, the nation’s fifth largest museum, th Detroit Institute of Art, offers over one hundred galleries and still maintains the bragging rights for having the first van Gogh as a part of a U.S. museum collection. Art students will also enjoy a great variety of galleries, including the always engaging Elaine L. Jacob gallery or the edgier (occasionally disturbing) exhibits presented at the 555 gallery. Externally, the city itself is alive with an atmosphere of soulful music, ecclectic people, and sensational murals. Whether you hit the Detroit Institute of the Arts to peruse Diego Rivera’s mural in the Great Hall, or stumble upon one of local artist Nivek Monet’s homegrown masterpieces, Detroit is alive and well and celebrating the arts.If you find yourself within the city limits to attend a school or the National Portfolio Day in October, the rhythms of the city are sure to infuse your soul and highten your senses.
