Grand On River is a former bank building in Detroit that is undergoing renovations.
Grand On River is a multi-purpose building. Artists and builders use Grand On River as their studio space. Community groups meet at Grand On River regularly. Also, Grand On River is a unique venue for interdisciplinary art shows.
A Detroit Savings bank branch was first established at the corner of Grand River and Warren in 1909. The current building is estimated to have been completed in 1927. It was an active bank until the late 70’s. After closing the bank, the space was a club, a church, and a museum of light and contemporary art.
The space is a unique combination of extremes. There are aspects of the building that have gone seemingly untouched by time, and others that have suffered quite a bit of damage over the years.
