For the past 25 years, Matrix Human Services’ ArtWorks Detroit event has leveraged the love of art to raise critical funds for children and families in need throughout Detroit. This year, the funds are more vital than ever as they will go towards COVID-19 relief programming, so the event will go on in an expanded format from August 24-27th with private viewing appointments and online bidding.
There will be over 90 pieces of art available for auction and several amazing experiences available for purchase to continue support of Matrix and participate again in ArtWorks Detroit. To register to bid or preview artwork, please note the following information:
