THE VENUE

THE RUSSELL INDUSTRIAL CENTER

A historic 2,200,000 sq-ft seven building complex, designed by Albert Kahn for John William Murray in 1915, the Russell is a symbol of Detroit's longstanding industrial history. Once a manufacturing site for the automotive industry, the Russell is now a world-renowned hub for artists, artisans, and forward-thinking entrepreneurs.

The Project occupies the Center's massive outdoor courtyard, first floor of Expo building, and an auxiliary building that we call The Art House.

Our partnership with The Russell Industrial Center, has allowed MGP to grow and thrive in ways we never dreamed possible. Thank you RIC for your constant and generous support!
