Founded in the summer of 2018, the Young Curators of Detroit is a collaboration with the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). Consisting of an art loving group of young people ages 18-24, our Young Curators work with the DIA gallery teachers, artists and curators to learn the business side of art. After four days of working together at DIA and two days at Mack Alive's art gallery of local artists' work, the group began practicing their skills with their peers and applied what they learned, prior to going back to the DIA for an award ceremony with local leaders. Young Curators group is led by the Mack Alive Director of Art and Sports, Richard Todd Smith.
The Detroit Institute of Arts’ first class of Young Curators completed an arts education program in August through a new collaboration with Mack Alive, a community organization on Detroit’s east side. Mack Alive selected 20 young adults from their surrounding neighborhood who are interested in becoming more involved in the arts while also serving as mentors for younger children.
