This June, the heart of Detroit will be alight with the vibrant energy of the Michigan Glass Project, a unique three-day festival that combines the talents of glass and visual artists with the rhythms of music to create an immersive experience for all ages. Scheduled from June 21st to June 23rd, 2024, at the iconic Russell Industrial Center, this event not only showcases the creative prowess of artists from across the country but also supports a heartfelt cause: the enrichment of art education for Detroit's youth.

A Glimpse into the Festival

At the Michigan Glass Project festival, attendees will have the rare opportunity to witness art being made live. Artists will be working on their pieces throughout the event, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process that often remains hidden within studio walls. From the intricate work of glassblowing to the broad strokes of painters, the festival promises a kaleidoscope of artistic endeavors.

The culmination of this creative showcase is the auction on Sunday, where the pieces crafted during the festival are sold. The proceeds from these sales are dedicated to Art Road Nonprofit, a charity with the noble mission of bringing art classes back to schools in Detroit. Through this effort, the Michigan Glass Project not only celebrates art but also ensures its legacy by nurturing future generations of artists.
