Mosaic remains committed to the health and well-being of young artists, our team, and the greater community. In light of recent developments related to COVID-19 and the Governor’s Executive Order, Mosaic has transitioned all of its in-person programming to a virtual format. We will continue to communicate through our website, email, and social media channels with updates regarding these programs and any future changes.

Thank you for understanding and for your support. Wishing you good health.

In service,

Our critically acclaimed student-driven performances and national and international tours have brought worldwide attention to Detroit as a center for arts and culture while shining a spotlight on the area’s talented young people and creating new and diverse audiences for the performing arts.

Founded by Rick Sperling in 1992 to address gaps in Metro Detroit arts education, Mosaic served 25 young artists in its inaugural year. Today, hundreds of youth from more than 50 Metro Detroit schools participate in Mosaic’s First, Second and Main Stage programs every year.
