The Michigan Glass Project Main Event

July 20, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - July 22, 2018 @ 11:30 pm

Join us for our annual live art & music festival benefitting Art Road Nonprofit, an organization that is actively returning art classes to Detroit Public Schools. Over 24,000 children in Detroit are without art class as part of their regular cirriculum; we aim to change that! With you’re hlep, we’ve donated $256,000 to worthy Detroit causes in our first six years. 2017 alone allowed us to donate $100,000 to Art Road allowing them to put art into a fourth school. This years goal is $125,000 which means a fifth school for the roster! United we change the world; Come be a part of the mission and the movement!

Come check out three days of live glassblowing, live painters, vendors, music on two stages, drinks and food! Get in on the gigatic silent auction and live auction with donated work and pieces created on site. Our space provides a place for sponsors, artists, vendors and attendees to establish new connections as well as expand on existing relationships; a place to create art without pressure, simply for the sake of giving, sharing, and community building; a place for the community to take part in ensuring that children have every opportunity to express themselves and acuate their potential as they grow!
