Located in the hub of Detroit’s Cultural Center, the Scarab Club celebrates Michigan art. Whether your interest is in art, poetry, or music you’ll find more than enough to fill your schedule.
Integral to this mission is supporting educational opportunities by way of classes, lectures, and special programming. Partnering with local arts organizations such as Springfed Arts-Metro Detroit Writers allows the Scarab Club to enrich its offerings to the community.
Serving the community is vital to the Scarab Club. Through exhibitions, classes, lectures, poetry readings and concerts, the organization strives to offer a diverse array of cultural activities that will inspire the creative spirit.
Providing opportunities to area youth is one way the Scarab Club gives back to the community.
In 2016, the Scarab Club partnered with Alternatives for Girls to launch “Future Artists,” connecting at-risk and homeless young women with women artists in a monthly after-school program.
Summer Youth Training Program
Through a partnership with the City of Detroit Recreation Department and Arts Place of Detroit the organizations together offered a “Summer Youth Training Program.” Three floors of the building were filled with young musicians, dancers, and vocalists preparing for a final recital at Wayne State University.
The Scarab Club offers internships for local students. The goal ultimately is to broaden their contact and experience with the greater arts community and help them enhance their resumes and portfolios. Internships are offered throughout the year.
