Capitalizing on its newly acquired celebrity, the KUNSTHALLE DETROIT Museum, long perceived as an offshoot of the New York artworld, is obviously intent on becoming an institution of international importance in its own right. To this end the museum has been pulling out all the stops. With its long time director Tate Osten, presenting world class exhibitions, it appears that the KUNSTHALLE DETROIT Museum has created a cultural identity that is a testament to its resilience.

I teach art and two years ago I took my class to the museum. Tate Osten gave my class a personal tour of the exhibit. The high school students were impressed and learned a lot about contemporary art.
Dlectricity was an amazing event! Ms. Osten played a role in organizing the festival which brought thousands to Detroit. Tate and Kunsthalle are a wonderful resource and source of inspiration for the Detroit community!

I love the Kunsthalle Detroit. Its so refreshing to have a multi media museum in this city. I look forward to every exhibition and enjoy them tremendously. As a designer myself I appreciate the 'light art' as a fresh medium and utilize the influence in my own creations. Thank you Kunsthalle Detroit!

Kunsthalle Detroit is a new, up and coming, forward thinking cultural treasure in Detroit. Our city has taken its hard hits but the love of art and culture remains. Tate Osten perseveres with her vision of bringing the highest standards to the museum and luckily, the city of Detroit.

I had driven past this abandoned bank building for years on my way from home to Wayne State University and Detroit's Cultural Center. You can't imagine the surprise I experienced when I noticed workmen coming in and out one day. I stopped and walked in and met Tate Osten. She told me of her plans to create an art venue devoted entirely to light media/video. We chatted for some time. I was most impressed not only with her vision, but also with her courage and fortitude in coming to Detriot and choosing that location.

Since that first visit I have gone back to see exhibitions and to participate in discussions. Detroit is fortunate to have Kunsthalle. No other non-profit in Detroit, no other museum, is doing what Kunsthalle is doing for Detroit. No other arts institution in the city provides as much space for viewing these types of installations.

Kunsthalle has brought work from around the world by some of the most outstanding artists working with video and light to Detroit. Kunsthalle is an exceptionally valuable addition to the Detroit art community because it is unique both in its vision and execution. What Dia:Beacon is to minimalism, Kunshalle is to video and light based art forms.

I met Tate at a wonderful event at her place.
i have had the opportunity to meet her and speak with her on organization.
We are working together to get some more things going to help her in her wonderful cause to help children with their ambitions and dreams.
I grew up in that area and to see what she is doing brings hope in an area where it has long died and all but forgotten by others.
Her passion and dedication is unparalleled and to have the opportunity to work with her is a privilege.
I have spoken with people who still live in the area and they are excited that someone has taken a true interest in helping in a very valuable way in their community.

Thank You,
Mark Cooper
