The RED's permanent collection features artwork created by Detroit-area youth. Works of art were collected by Yvette Rock, founder & CEO of Live Coal Gallery, L.L.C. Rock began acquiring children's art decades ago, but the collection in The RED features work purchased specifically for Live Coal since 2012. Live Coal is dedicated to the collection and preservation of artwork created by children. We thank all of you who have donated to us in order to make The RED and our permanent collection possible!
While we are working on creating our digital gallery, please enjoy photos taken with aspiring artists whose works grace our museum walls.
In the early years of Live Coal Gallery, one of our neighbors donated several original hand-blown glass pieces made by her late husband, Larry Humphrey. These glass pieces are on display at The RED. Mr. Humphrey was an artist and longtime Detroit educator. The RED has dedicated special area of the museum in honor or Mr. Humphrey! Glass pieces in image gallery are part of the Live Coal Gallery permanent collection. We will also post images of glassworks available for sale in the future in our shop. Please come back and visit our website for updates.
