Spread Art is a “by artists, for artists” grassroots nonprofit organization. Co-Directors Thomas Bell and Christina deRoos are multidisciplinary artists (sound, video, photography, mixed media), curators and event producers.
Spread Art presents multidisciplinary art events in Detroit and beyond. We focus on experimentation and innovation. We support work that pushes creative boundaries, incorporates technology, invites public participation, and/or explores immediately-relevant social themes.
Spread Art’s residency program is based in southwest Detroit. Innovative artists across all artistic mediums are supported with housing, work space, exhibition opportunities, and more. Residencies vary from one week to two months or longer. Visiting artists are connected with Detroit’s creative community through residency dinners, artist talks, social gatherings, and teaching opportunities for youth and adults.
