The Detroit Artists Market (DAM) is honored to present the All Media Exhibition, juried by Valerie Mercer, Curator of African American Art and Head of the General Motors Center for African American Art at the Detroit Institute of Arts. The All Media Exhibition began with an open call for DAM members and, from those entries, Mercer selected 58 local artists whose work will be featured.The 2021 All Media Exhibition reveals how Detroit artists kept busy during the surge of the pandemic. They created artworks that expressed, through varied artistic approaches, the importance of hope, survival, love, humanity, identity, beauty, community, nature, and culture for their and our lives. The skills with which these perspectives are conveyed in the artworks justify the region’s enduring pride in its artists. -Valerie J. Mercer
