Art is everywhere in greater Detroit and Detroit Performs, a TV series from WTVS Detroit Public TV, connects people with amazing art experiences.  Each 30-minute episode features artists working in a variety of disciplines to reveal the artistic process and how it might inspire others to pick up a paint brush, go see a performance, or discover their personal muse. We want your help!
