Home to a bevy of artists, authors, filmmakers, and musicians, art is an integral part of life in Michigan. Natives like Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Bob Seger, Madonna, Eminem, Kid Rock, Big Sean, and countless others, have provided the soundtrack to our lives. The local landscape has been the backdrop for over 3,000 films shot partially, or entirely in the state. Detroit is marked with stunning murals and houses one of the nation’s most respected art collections at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Ann Arbor hosts one of the largest summer art fairs in the world, and creatives from around the globe flock to Grand Rapids to compete for the world’s most valuable art prize.
