5e GalleryArts Center presents work that is transformational. We provide a myriad of opportunities for engagement beyond performances, allowing for deeper connection and understanding among Artists, Students, and Community. As a partner in these endeavors, donors play an active role in enabling our Students, and Artists to transform lives through the arts.
5e Gallery is an alternative multidisciplinary arts organization that presents and supports contemporary artists and their work, facilitates the creation of new work, and creatively engages, builds, and informs audiences and communities.
FILM & VIDEO: Featuring independent films from all over the world and the most comfortable seats you’ll find, 5e Gallery Cinema shows the best of indie cinema.
VISUAL ARTS: The Visual Arts Program consists of exhibitions, installations, artist talks and educational workshops. We support the investigation of new ideas and foster the creation and presentation of innovative work of all kinds. Programs are designed to be of interest to the established art world while being open and accessible to everyone.
LIVE ARTS: We present concerts, workshops, and discussions and commission new work. Solo performance, interdisciplinary explorations, and small ensemble pieces all have a home at 5e Gallery. We present readings by a wide range of authors and larger community-oriented events.
PUBLIC ART: 5e Gallery has commissioned public art projects in the Southwest and Corktown communities. Our public art porgram makes Detroit the setting and the subject.
EVENTS: Gallery openings, and private functions make 5e Gallery a space where people can connect. The annual Dilla Day “Ma Dukes is the Foundation” fundraiser benefitting the J Dilla Foundation has become the highlight of 5e Gallery‘s Year.
EDUCATION: We teach youth and adults the ins and outs of working as a Professional Artist. All year long we offer programming for youngsters and their families as part of our Commitment to the Community.
