DETROIT HISTORICAL SOCIETY
The Detroit Historical Society tells Detroit’s stories and why they matter. We are the only organization solely dedicated to ensuring that the history of our city is preserved so that current and future generations of Detroiters can better understand the people, places and events that helped shape our lives. We strive to positively impact Detroit’s cultural landscape by delivering our message to the community in new and innovative ways, and by convening important conversations that will help fuel positive change for southeast Michigan.
Founded in 1921, the Detroit Historical Society is as an independent non-profit institution that, under an agreement with the City of Detroit, operates and develops exhibitions and programming for two city-owned museums, the Detroit Historical Museum in Detroit’s Midtown neighborhood and the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Belle Isle. We also operate and maintain the Collections Resource Center located at Historic Fort Wayne which stands as the guardian of more than 250,000 artifacts representing more than 300 years of metropolitan Detroit’s history.
DETROIT SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
The most accessible orchestra on the planet, the acclaimed Detroit Symphony Orchestra is known for trailblazing performances, collaborations with the world’s foremost musical artists, and a deep connection to its city.
As a community-supported orchestra, generous giving by individuals and institutions at all levels drives the continued success and growth of the institution. Conductor Leonard Slatkin, who recently concluded an acclaimed decade-long tenure at the helm, now serves as the DSO’s Music Director Laureate, endowed by the Kresge Foundation. Celebrated conductor, arranger, and trumpeter Jeff Tyzik is the orchestra’s Principal Pops Conductor, while the outstanding trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard holds the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Jazz Creative Director Chair.
LEADER DOGS FOR THE BLIND
New to Culture on 4th by Flagstar Bank will be Leader Dogs for the Blind, featuring the adorable service dogs in training and their handlers who make it all possible.
OAKLAND COUNTY FINANCIAL LITERACY ART CONTEST
The Treasurer Meisner Financial Literacy Multi-Media Arts Contest was established in 2010 by Oakland County Treasurer Andy Meisner with the help of Oakland Schools and their Fine Arts Coordinator, Hedy Blatt. The goal of contest is to help foster a conversation about financial literacy themes and concepts through art. 9th-12th graders submit artwork that exhibit these themes with an artist statement detailing what they are depicting. This great program is only made possible by our generous sponsor, Flagstar Bank, our fiduciary, OLHSA, and Oakland Schools. To date, over $80,000 in scholarships and cash prizes have been awarded to Oakland County high school students.
