Each September, Detroit witnesses a collaborative showcase of creativity and innovation, as a diverse range of partners, including emerging studios, established businesses, and educational institutions, unite to present their latest projects and concepts. These interdisciplinary gatherings span the entire city, shining a spotlight on the remarkable talent and forward-thinking that contribute to Detroit’s recognition as a UNESCO City of Design.

Detroit Month of Design

A group of people pose with artist Mike Han for his Detroit exhibition opening.

In his debut gallery exhibition, Mike Han: United by Design (9/2- 9/30), Han will showcase his creative practice working across disciplines inspired by his Korean heritage, graffiti, and modern design.

Prints of his art can be purchased at your local Gardner White store.

The Art of Mike Han

Furniture pieces and wall hanging art designed by Mike Han at his Detroit exhibition.

I believe…art should be accessible, and I believe the same should be true for design but the things made for everyone must also be made responsibly. I aspire to design things that add value, beauty, and joy to people’s everyday lives with the environment in mind. I’m thrilled to be taking the first steps to build this dream with incredible partners like Gardner-White, Haddy, and Leon Speakers.
