MISSION

The mission of Live Coal Gallery is to be a vibrant Detroit-based gallery and museum that fosters a passion for art, community, and learning.  Our focus is to collect, exhibit, and sell the works of aspiring, emerging, and established artists. We provide hands-on experiences for children and families, and collaborate with businesses, organizations, and schools on a variety of individual and community projects.  As a collecting museum, we are invested in having a large permanent collection of art created by Detroit youth and local artists.


INSPIRATION

When a coal is set ablaze, it can burn brightly.  However, if it remains by itself, it cools quickly and will not reach its full potential or purpose. When burning coals come together, the heat generated is immense. Burning coals power whole cities. They have the potential to completely alter their environment – it is heated coal under pressure that produces one of earth’s hardest materials and most precious gems. Live Coal Gallery will bring together artists – live “coals” – who will be agents of transformation in our city and help build a dynamic and strong community.


COMPANY

LCG is a limited liability company owned and directed by Detroit artist Yvette Rock.  Rock describes LCG as a social venture whose primary purpose is to see Detroit renewed through the beauty and creativity that artists of every generation can bring. 


COMMUNITY GIVING PROGRAM

Live Coal Gallery is committed to supporting local non-profit organizations through the LCG Community Giving Program. LCG will do this by designating months out of the year towards a special matching program.  Each non-profit will be designated a month out of the year in which it will receive a percentage of that months’ sales. Non-profits are selected based on recommendations given by other non-profits, with a focus on non-profits that directly impact our neighborhood and Detroit youth.  LCG reserves the right to make the final decision regarding LCG Community Giving Program recipients. No solicitations, please.
