The Detroit Artists Market (DAM) is pleased to present IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME, opening Friday, August 1st 2014. With this exciting open-call challenge, more than 175 Detroit area artists each selected five wood pieces to use in creating the unique and collectible works of art featured in this fun, end-of-summer exhibition. “This show is about ingenuity and mystery,” said DAM Director Matt Fry. “I’ve seen artist after artist select their wood pieces, and each time I find myself excitedly asking ‘I wonder what they’re going to come up with?’” IF YOU BUILD IT treats visitors to the full spectrum of Detroit’s artistic talent, with works from local ceramicists, filmmakers, glass blowers, illustrators, jewelry designers, metal smiths, painters, photographers, printmakers, sculptors and videographers. All artworks priced at $250 or less, making this an ideal show for first-time visitors and new collectors.

IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME Opens Friday, August 1st, 2014 and runs through Friday, August 29th, 2014
Opening reception: Friday, August 1st, 2014 6–9pm
