Detroit Metro Times is seeking a new art writer to join our team.

We’re looking for a writer who has a flare for writing about art in Detroit, with the city as the canvas. This writer is plugged in to both the refined and unrefined art scenes, and can cover the spirit of the Detroit art renaissance.

The ideal art writer is as comfortable in the DIA as they are with people creating a sculpture in an abandoned building. They are familiar with both street art and fine art from around the world, and able to write about the art renaissance of Detroit with passion and respect. This writer is craving a platform to tell the engaging, meaningful art stories that local and national media outlets ignore or overlook. This person knows where and how to find those stories, while staying ahead of the curve and setting the trend.

The ideal art writer is capable of writing enthralling magazine-style art features as well as short 200-word articles. Having a knack for photography is a plus.

We are seeking an art writer who wants to blog daily, engage with the public, and is comfortable making public appearances on TV and radio. We are looking for a writer who knows how to harness the power of social media without being tethered to it.

The ideal candidate is curious, self-motivated, and energized by Detroit. They have a discerning eye for soulful art. Their passion and commitment to the city and art journalism are apparent in their work.
