Bryant Tillman has painted for 30 years. He was introduced to art by the late Cass Corridor painter Bradley Jones at Wayne County Community College. A field trip to the Impressionists wing at the Detroit Institute of Arts in 1983 forever changed this Detroiter’s destiny. Starting with modest exhibits in artists’ venues like the Detroit Artist Market, hipster spaces, and backyard soirees, Tillman developed a parallel interest in curatorial aspects of art presentation and soon became the “go-to” guy for guerilla venues in the ’80s and gallery management over the past decade.
