About PLAYGROUND DETROIT
PLAYGROUND DETROIT is a contemporary art gallery and creative talent agency based in Detroit, Michigan featuring emerging contemporary artists. Established in 2012, our mission is to create opportunities for artists and creative professionals in order to support and expand Detroit's creative economy, led by co-owners Paulina Petkoski and Samantha Bankle Schefman. In 2017, the gallery opened its first location in Detroit, Michigan located at 2845 Gratiot Avenue in the McDougall-Hunt neighborhood, and opened a second retail location on Farmer Street in downtown Detroit in 2020.
