The Scarab Club

Our Mission:  The Scarab Club is an enduring home for the cultivation and celebration of the visual, literary, and performing arts in Detroit. In welcoming all drawn to creative expression and artistic excellence, we aim to foster a stronger, more vibrant arts community.

The visual arts in all media are presented through our ongoing exhibition program. Come to meet artists and see new work at an opening.  Join us for a lecture or gallery talk. Or sketch from a live model, sessions held four times weekly.

Music
