It’s been one year since Paulina Petkoski and Samantha Bankle Schefman (both of whom snagged a spot on Metro Times’ People Issue this past year) opened the doors to Playground Detroit, going all in on the future of local artists. Part independent gallery, part talent incubator, Playground Detroit is celebrating a blowout 2018 full of diverse programming (not to mention cash in the pockets of working artists). Playground’s annual group exhibition Hell Yes! will focus on positivity and manifestation. The showing will feature a selection of artists included in solo and group exhibitions throughout the year, in addition to some 2019 up-and-comers.



Hell Yes! opening reception begins at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17 at Playground Detroit; 2845 Gratiot Ave., Detroit; 313-649-7741; playgrounddetroit.com; Event is free.
