The Detroit Projection Project (DPP) is the ambitious undertaking by artists Steve Coy and Brandon Walley to display contemporary art to the general public of Detroit, Michigan. More specifically, DPP will redefine the concept of where art is displayed, removing the cultural and structural confines of the gallery and museum, by bringing works of art outside for all to see.

Beginning in the fall of 2009, DPP will feature one new piece a month from both local and internationally renowned artists. On the first of each month a new and highly visible location will unveil the next work of art. The pieces will be shown via digital projection on various building and other surprising spaces when the sun goes down and play on a continues loop until the night fades the next morning.

The Detroit Projection Project’s mission is simple, but its impact shouldbe significant. Bring the highest caliber of modern video art to the people, free of charge. The juxtaposition of the art and the physical locations will point out provocative issues such as the cultural and socio-economic climate of urban centers (particularly the exaggerated state of Detroit), modern advertising, and the role of contemporary art in these current times.
