SEAFOAM PALACE is an arts organization that celebrates absurdity in all its curious shapes and sizes. Based loosely in Detroit, we’re a mobile nonprofit entity whose members have engaged in unconventional events, performances, exhibitions and publishing projects in many international cities for over 20 years.
