Red Bull House of Art Opens in Detroit

A new art gallery celebrates their grand opening in Detroit’s Eastern Market tomorrow [THURS] evening. It’s called the Red Bull House of Art and it’s the first of its kind in North America. Detroit based artist Matt Eaton was tapped to be the gallery’s curator.

Eight artists from the Metro Detroit area were chosen by our curator Matt Eaton. They will be showcasing during eight weeks celebrating the inaugural exhibition from the Red Bull House of Art.

The chosen eight artists are Matt Gordon, Keri Mortimer, Frank Jonas, Jeff Risk, Mark Sarmel, Ben Saginaw, Crystal Vinson, Peter DeAngelo.

Given the city’s infamous “Do It Yourself” culture, WDET's Travis Wright started the interview by asking him why it made sense for Red Bull to open a gallery in Detroit.

The gallery will open to the public at 6pm. Gallery Hours for Memorial Day weekend are: Friday - 10am-3pm Saturday 10am-3pm Sunday 10am-3pm Monday 10am-3pm

Red Bull House of Art Detroit is located in Eastern Market at 1551 Winder St., Detroit.

Parking is available in all of the Eastern Market Lots. There will be security monitoring all lots, and side streets for the duration of the event.
