About


The Gordon Square Arts District is a world-class arts destination anchored by its three major theatres, with unique shopping and fantastic dining options, in the heart of Detroit Shoreway. It was revitalized as the Gordon Square Arts District in the early 2000s through a collaboration between DSCDO, Cleveland Public Theatre and Near West Theatre.

In the Gordon Square Arts District, arts and culture are part of the day-to-day experience of residents and visitors. Many of the artistic organizations in the district share values of equity, inclusion and social justice, and all offer free or low-cost opportunities among their programming.

The Gordon Square commercial district at West 65th Street and Detroit Avenue dates back over 100 years. Read more about the history of the Gordon Square Arts District here.
