Local artists selling their work thanks to MOCAD, ACE Rapid Response Fundraiser

Local artist Nereida Patricia has sold her 2019 piece titled Two Nudes at Christopher Street Pier by participating in the Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art. Patricia is one of many artists who have been able to sell their work online, as the COVID-19 pandemic closed art galleries and auctions.

The Rapid Response Fundraiser for Artists and Creatives is helping local artists facing financial hardships because of cancelled gigs, shows, and exhibits sell their work online in the MOCAD store at mocadetroit.org. The fundraiser, in which the ACE Office is a partner, also helps the museum, which like others across the city has had to shut its doors because of the coronavirus outbreak.
