Born and raised in Detroit, Doug Schwartz is the creative director at DetroitWick; a manufacturing gallery space in Eastern Market, the largest historic market in the United States. Doug’s artistic medium is “sensory experience”, a focus based on joining company and customer expressed through all 5 senses.
Also a proud partner of Raise The Caliber®, a National Advocacy Campaign to end illegal gun violence in America. Schwartz is the only maker in the US for Encapsulate1/ SHREDS®: Pieces of guns that remain after they’ve been voluntarily turned in through gun buy back and amnesty programs or seized from crime scenes from across America. We transform SHREDS® into something beautiful by encasing them in solid lucite, to create a one of kind sculpture. Percentage of proceeds from each sale are donated to the Caliber Foundation® to help victims, families and communities that have been devastated by illegal gun violence.
