The DPL Galleria

Black Bottom Street View

Due to popular demand The Black Bottom Exhibit located on the 3rd floor Strohm Hall has been extended to Friday, April 26, 2019.

Professor and architect Emily Kutil beautifully etched together a series of photographs from Burton Historical Collection archive of every house in a large area of Detroit's forgotten Black Bottom neighborhood. Black Bottom, along with Paradise Valley, was the historic heart of Detroit's African American community. 

SAFE SPACE by We-Are-Familia

The exhibition will be held at the DPL Galleria from March 30, 2019 to May 3rd 2019

SAFE SPACE aims to extend the library’s ability to foster community and celebrate Detroit’s creativity in a space outside the canonical art-viewing realms, like stand-alone galleries or museums. We-Are-Familia is a group of artists and designers from around the world who work collaboratively. Together, they build community through the arts, which are multi-sensory and multi-linguistic.
