The Live Coal Collective is an annually selected group of aspiring, emerging, and established artists committed to engaging Live Coal Gallery’s mission and programming for one year. Artists are given opportunities to exhibit and sell work, lead and facilitate workshops, create special installations and performances, and engage Detroit-area neighborhoods with the arts.
Members include (from left to right): Timashion Jones, Patricia Millender, April Anue, Yvette Rock, and Jean Alicia Elster. The LCC will be focusing on the Knight Awarded project, Aired Out Quilts.
The Live Coal Collective is an annually selected group of artists who engage the public with exhibitions, installations, performances, and workshops. The LCC is a fairly new initiative of Live Coal. As such, we are still developing strategies of how to fund artists and the workshops they lead.
Our first Live Coal Collective was from 2016-2017 and included: Nichole Christian, Espacia Fotiu, Mahogany Jones*, Billy Mark*, Sarah Mark, and Saffell Gardner*. (*Kresge Artist Fellows)
