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.

The Kunsthalle Detroit is a fantastic museum. It has a wonderful venue and is a hidden gem in the city of Detroit! The leadership of the museum has an inspiring vision which is reflected in the high quality exhibitions that they host.

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

In the summer of 2011 I volunteered at Kunsthalle Detroit. I helped get the museum ready for the grand opening. I couldn't believe the amount of work put into the museum by one small family. There was A LOT to do before the opening so I was glad to help! The opening was a great success and I was proud to be a part of it. The art is nothing like I've ever seen before and it's awesome we have this type of museum in Detroit.

More energy than a tornado... more fire than the sun.... more dreams than Apollo, sleepwalking in the dawn... Detroit... a love song.

Kunsthalle Detroit has shown Detroit and the world the impact that art can have upon a city and how in so many ways that impact can positively influence people to want to participate and be part of the change that is converting a city considered fallen, to one of resurrection. Kunsthalle Detroit Museum of Contemporary Art and Light is the example of courage, belief, and conviction in the art of light that does well to accent the city and provide a new thread of hope for at a time when hope requires a nudge. I believe Kunsthalle will stimulate artistic and communal growth and prove to be the lead for many to come.
