Innerstate Gallery

It is absolutely amazing what is going on in Detroit in the art world. Last year on a tour of the Quicken Loan offices I spoke to some employees who work at Bedrock, a Quicken company. Something one of them said really stuck with me. They said after all the survey's and studies on how to revitalize the once great city of Detroit, they all had one theme in common. GET THE ARTISTS ON BOARD!! Yes this is true. Not just because the artists will move to Detroit, but because art connects us all. It plays a major roll in many of our lives. Some of us more then others, but you have to admit you see art every day. So now we talk about Innerstate Gallery. The owners are so in touch with the community, they have created a gallery and online art store that is literally booming! The current exhibit they are featuring is Versatile featuring the artwork of graffiti artist COPE2. Also located on the side streets of the Eastern Market, the red dots (meaning sold artworks) were more abundant then any gallery opening I have seen in Birmingham in the past year. If you like art, this is a must see gallery. Check them out on the web and on Facebook. Support these artists and you are supporting our great city of Detroit.
