Paint Detroit with Generosity calendar 2021


The Paint Detroit with Generosity calendar features one painting and a Mint youth worker self portrait for every month of 2021.

Our first calendar features 13 beautiful youth paintings, all made in the Mint Creative Summer Jobs program over five years and all promised as Mint’s gifts to local nonprofit organizations.


Celebrate youth art, beauty and generosity throughout 2021 with Mint’s first calendar.

Mint Artists Guild’s first calendar celebrates five years of its Paint Detroit with Generosity initiative. Each painting reflects the work and missions of a local nonprofit, as depicted by a youth artist working for Mint.
The wall calendars share 13 of the best Paint Detroit with Generosity paintings, summaries of the nonprofit recipients, and short profiles of the artists who created them. Among the nonprofits featured are Freedom House, People for Palmer Park and Ronald McDonald House – Detroit. The cover painting was created by Mint’s Alexis Bagley, who also painted our Abstract Arrow and Aretha Franklin pieces, now available as limited edition high quality Mint Prints.
The Mint calendar covers January through December 2021 and paintings come from all five years of the Paint Detroit with Generosity initiative.
Calendars measure 17 inches by 11 inches and have a small hole for ease of hanging. Your purchase of a Mint calendar will support our 2021 youth development, creative careers and community art programs.

This gives an overview of all 12 months Paint Detroit with Generosity paintings.
Each month has details about the nonprofit that received the Paint Detroit with Generosity painting from Mint and the Mint youth worker who created it. May 2021 was painted by Lakiya Ealy.
