The Time is Wright Now!

The Time is Wright Now!

A virtual event to celebrate the strides we have made and those we will take together…

Streaming on our website, local dignitaries like Deputy Mayor Conrad Mallet, Judge Craig Strong, Council Member Scott Benson, and others will join The Wright Museum’s CEO Neil Barclay and Board Chair Eric Peterson in hosting this exciting and meaningful event!

This very special program will feature appearances and performances by local and national celebrities, including jessica Care moore, De’Sean Jones, Marion Hayden, and a host of others, with an introduction by Karrington Mitchel, along with a moving memorial tribute to those we have lost this year to COVID-19. All contributions will go towards general operating support for The Wright Museum during this critical time in our history!


When you make a contribution to The Wright, you're ensuring that our mission to preserve and celebrate African American history and culture can continue.

Across the nation, the call to support cultural institutions, like The Wright, thankfully continues to rise! We are committed to opening minds and changing lives for all by providing a cultural and historical perspective to the present moment. As we operate amid the COVID-19 pandemic, despite reduced resources, we recognize the need for increased education around the contribution that African Americans have and continue to make to both this nation and to the world.

Please consider purchasing an individual or company membership, making a tax-deductible donation, or buying a unique piece of art from our Art Auction. This is a critical time for our institution and we need your financial support, today!

Art from the auction



The Detroit Artist Community has supported The Wright Museum throughout its history from donating art to sell at fundraisers to holding benefit concerts. Detroit artists supported us then and we are honored to support them now, during these trying times, by hosting an auction where the proceeds from certain pieces of art will be split equally with the artist.


Thank you to our sponsors!
