About Seafoam Palace

Seafoam Palace is an arts organization that celebrates creative forays into otherworldly constructs. Our aim is to engage the imagination with unconventional events, artworks, workshops, and poetic interpretations of scientific and anthropological phenomena and artifacts.

Seafoam Palace was started in 2011 by a group of artists who have collaborated on projects in Detroit, New York, Berlin, Barcelona, Krakow and other cities since 2001. Most of us are based in Detroit, working with the local community and artists from all over the world to engage in future events. We all look forward to meeting you!
