Dear Friends of CCS Galleries,

Our 2016-2017 season is in full swing and now is your chance to be a part of a growing program of arts enrichment at one of the country’s best colleges of art and design – CCS!

Detroit’s burgeoning renewal provides us with a unique opportunity to expand our public programming and increase access to free arts and cultural events in the city, while at the same time, enhancing the quality of a CCS education and the student experience.

Our new Office of Exhibitions & Public Programs promises to enhance and expand all of the important programs that you’ve come to expect at CCS.  Under this new umbrella, we add the Valade Family Gallery to our list of signature CCS galleries, so we’ll have more space to provide some of our area’s best contemporary art exhibitions, as well as performance, film and literary events, and a wide variety of educational offerings including lectures, publications and new professional development opportunities that bolster our students’ art education.

As a Friend of CCS Galleries, you provide crucial funding that directly supports exhibitions in our galleries; expands student opportunities in curatorial practice and other specialized activities; supports the Woodward Lecture Series and other public programs; and helps us to deepen our engagement with the community and strengthen CCS’s impact as a major cultural anchor.

Joining the Friends is a great way to make a meaningful contribution to CCS and to the arts in Detroit.  Join today and help us unleash the creativity!

With appreciation,

Michelle Perron
Director, Office of Exhibitions & Public Programs
