Art X Detroit is a free, five-day series of exhibitions, presentations, readings, discussions, concerts, and dance performances for the Detroit community. Art X will showcase newly commissioned works from the 36 winners of Kresge Artist Fellowships and its two Eminent Artists, renowned visual artist Charles McGee and iconic jazz musician Marcus Belgrave. This first-ever public celebration of the 2008-2010 Kresge Artists will take place from April 6-10, 2011, in many cultural organizations located in Midtown Detroit. Art X Detroit is being presented by several institutions – the Midtown-based University Cultural Center Association (UCCA), College for Creative Studies, and Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), in addition to ArtServe Michigan. Art X is produced by the UCCA, and is generously sponsored by The Kresge Foundation.

These events are FREE and open to the public.
