The Mission

To establish a creative center where artists live, work, and interact with their community in an innovative and educational environment

To achieve our mission, we set 5 concrete goals that drive our projects and services. We aim for these services to be accessible to local and international artists and creative entrepreneurs, as well as youth and families. 

 affordable studio space

Affordable Studio Space

At 555 Arts, we provide affordable space to let your creative juices out. Spaces range in size and we are working to build more studios at our new location on Warren. Stay tuned for updates!

 high quality affordable arts education

High-Quality, Affordable Arts Education

At 555, we believe you should never stop growing and pushing yourself as an artist - but you should not have to drain your savings to learn. We provide classes and workshops at affordable rates to help you constantly develop artistically. 

 performance and exhibition space 

Exhibition & Performance Space

From walls for exhibiting your art to spaces to perform your production, 555 can facilitate displaying your creativity. Spaces range in size and type, and we are currently constructing more at our new Eastside Detroit location. Stay tuned for more details!

 community based artist residency detroit

Community-Based Artist Residency

In addition to spaces to work and perform, 555 is home to artists in residence - providing a place to live in and work in community with other artists. We hope our residency program fosters collaboration and provides a safe space for artists to be creative.

 Art for Public Spaces

Art for Public Spaces

We at 555 believe that art should not be confined to indoor spaces where you live or work and that it has infinite power to affect the community. We support art for public spaces around Detroit and beyond. Our new Art Park space will provide space for public installations and a Foundry to create new works.
