If you want proof that Ferndale’s arts and culture scene is coming into its own, consider that the esteemed Susanne Hilberry Gallery moved from toney Birmingham to a quiet residential area not far from Ferndale’s downtown.
Regarded by some to be the Grand Dame of the Detroit Art scene, Hilberry’s gallery has brought Metro Detroiters some of the most challenging and thought-provoking local and international contemporary art exhibits in Michigan.
The spacious gallery is deceptively stark –with large windows, numerous skylights and concrete floors– allowing patrons to expereience the art without distraction. The elegant gallery also boasts a serene backyard garden, perfect for showcasing large sculptures.
