SEO continues to be one of the nation’s top events of its kind showcasing the best student artwork to more than 3,000 opening night attendees and thousands more during the two week run of show. Enthusiasts, collectors, and members of the Detroit community celebrate the talented students, browse and purchase exceptional art and enjoy entertainment, food and beverages provided by local restaurants and caterers.

All proceeds from the sale of art goes directly to the student artists to jump start their art and design careers. Proceeds from the Student Exhibition Opening sponsorship and ticket sales helps to provide undergraduate student scholarships and free art programs for Detroit youth.
