Artist Next Door

Enhancing awareness of our communities and cultures through art.

The Artist Next Door illuminates and celebrates Detroit area artists from a variety of cultural backgrounds and disciplines to enhance awareness and understanding of our communities and cultures. The project will highlight the work of six Detroit-area artists whose work gives us a greater understanding of their cultural heritage and bring us closer as a region of neighbors.

In 2021, WDET will select six artist fellows to create an original piece of artwork. The artist’s process and work will be photographed and the artists will be profiled on WDET’s CultureShift. Each artist will receive a $1,000 stipend. Art Communities will be encouraged to highlight the work of the artists, and WDET will host virtual artist events for interactive conversations.
