Design impacts our everyday lives personally and/or professionally.

Metropolitan Museum of Design Detroit reveals the past, explores the current and deep-dives into the future of Design and related fields. We engage and value all ages to ignite an Ah-Ha spark leading to awareness of design history, mind-set shift for more intelligent resource selections or boost towards talent traction and future career choice.  MM-O-DD will highlight the people in the Design Industry, who may have traditional education yet others have self-taught or generational trade skills being passed along, each a valued asset in all facets of Design.

 In the future we will have a Detroit based location. The mobile culture remaining as we add the exhibitions which will include revolving permanent and traveling on-loan collections , including historical and currently important pieces which represent various facets of Design. Many of the selected items will be privately owned, while others will be co-curated with renown, community entities. The experiential  interactive installations engage people of all ages, by exposing them to classic and innovative Design genres, platforms and principles.
