performing artists crossing genres into the realm of fine art and
The Detroit Contemporary believes that the culmination of this work will act as a

The Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID), a community-based,
non-profit organization, was founded in 1978 by a group of Detroit artists.
A new Board of Directors, as well as several active members, have been
working behind the scenes to reintroduce CAID to the Detroit arts community.
The organization fosters and promotes the essential link between
contemporary arts and contemporary society through its exhibitions,
performances, critical and public discourse, and the funding of contemporary
arts and art-related activities.
