Detroit Artists Market (DAM) is the oldest continuously running non profit gallery in the Midwest.[1] The DAM is a contemporary art gallery in Detroit, Michigan[2] located in the cultural Midtown neighborhood near the Detroit Institute of Arts and Wayne State University.

The DAM was created in 1932 and was originally known as the Detroit Young Artists Market.[3] Its mandate was to give exhibition opportunities to artists under thirty, but by 1936, the gallery was renamed to the Detroit Artists Market, favoring emerging and established Detroit artists.
