Detroit Now & Then: Revival

Third Precinct Police Station / 555 Center for Public Arts

The Detroit Police Department Third Precinct in the southwest corner of the city closed in 2005 as part of a citywide consolidation of police stations. In 2009 it was bought by an arts group and renovated into a multi-purpose art gallery. Today the 555 Center for Public Arts "offers exhibition and installation space; host and support local, national, and international Residency Artists; lead and collaborate in the development of programs for the visual and performing arts; and provide workspace for practicing local artists."
