Spread Art and PLAYGROUND DETROIT are teaming up once again to offer one New York City artist a residency and exhibition opportunity in Detroit. Playground Detroit just announced a call for any NYC-based artists with a Michigan ‘connection’ to do an outdoor installation at the 2nd annual F.A.S.H Fest, organized by Presence II Productions. PLAYGROUND DETROIT has been invited back to participate for the second year, with a 10 x10’ granted open air space at the festival and this year, Spread Art has come aboard to offer the selected artist residency and work space.
This exciting opportunity gives groundbreaking artists and creators to travel to Detroit to create and showcase their unique work in Detroit’s own vibrant art scene. This event is an anticipated city-based festival which will include a broad range of engaging activities and events to celebrate Detroit and Michigan talent. Festival partners and sponsors include: The Detroit Free Press, StyleLine Magazine, the City of Detroit, and the Detroit Creative Corridor Center.
Playground Detroit's installation last year by Detroit-based artist, Cristin Richard was a major highlight at the festival and was very well-received by the public . This year, one finalist will be selected to display their work at the Detroit-based festival event. Spread Art and Playground Detroit are offering the selected artist a two-week residency program so he or she may construct their work in Detroit, and do the installation themselves.
