Sculpture is a limitless mode of art-making that assumes neither a specific material nor medium, rather it remains in perpetual dialogue with form be it a physical or conceptual representation. The open-ended nature of sculpture dovetails perfectly with the free energy of artists working in Detroit and their relentless exploration of identity, location, and metamorphosis. Artists in the Detroit area have an unusual latitude of freedom to make art when, where, and with whatever materials or means the artist wishes, without censorship, guardianship or market-driven trends.
