Our "company" (Wayne State) is difficult to do business with because of the numerous departments the contracts must proceed through, yet Lorna and the Carr Center were very patient and flexible. They thought of special details like leaving an art installation up so that we could see the art during our event, rather than removing the art since the show was due to come down, and it would have been easier on the site to do so. The staff was very accommodating during the actual event, and available to respond to dozens of little requests for garbage, microphones, things like that.Sent on 04/25/2013

The Carr Center aka Virgil H. Carr Arts League of Michigan is a true gem in downtown Detroit's Paradise Valley. It's a very affordable venue to rent and was perfect to host our strolling wedding reception of 200 people.Sent on 09/14/2012
My husband and I wanted a unique venue that would allow us to bring in our own licensed caterer and bartenders. The Carr Center is an art gallery that houses beautiful works of art from sculptures, to quilts and paintings. The site gave our guests an opportunity to spend time looking around the gallery while they strolled to each food station and table to talk with other friends and family.
I truly believe the reason our wedding day and reception was such a huge success that everyone is still happy to talk about, is because the Carr Center's distinctness.
Karen Miller is the Carr Center's operations manager and is extremely accommodating and professional. She promptly responds to emails and phone calls, and was happy to answer my 101 questions over the course of 9 months. Karen allowed us to come to decorate our room the day before our wedding without any issue.
Tyrone Overstreet is an extremely nice man who was willing to help us with all our needs. Tyrone helped my husband and the best men move tables and chairs over the course of a few hours the day before our wedding. He has helped with many events at the Carr Center and was able to tell us what would and wouldn't work, which we greatly appreciate because it saved us a lot of time and energy.
I loved everything about the Car Center and our dealings with its employees. I would not only recommend the venue to others, but I would hold other events there.
