The Atrium Project Space
The purpose of The Atrium Project Space is to showcase inspiring work that reflects the cultures of the Southwest Detroit Community and to support local artists.
The space is located at the offices of the Southwest Detroit Business Association at 7752 West Vernor, and is in the center of the West Vernor commercial district.
The Atrium opened in the summer of 2011 with the exhibit Voices & Visions: Telling Our Story Through Transforming the "Space Frames". The exhibit featured the artwork of community members created during workshops guided by Vito Valdez and the late Mary Laredo Herbeck. The participants' drawings provided design concepts that were used to create tiles now being placed on the West Vernor Space Frames.
