At the time, Oakland Press theater critic John Sousanis focused on coverage of the performing arts, while Nick concentrated on the fine arts.

TheDetroiter also offers short histories on some of Detroit's art galleries. TheDetroiter helped find art galleries and designed the gallery guide for Art Detroit Now, a Detroit area gallery crawl.
