Are you a Dearborn resident? looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?
Bloomberg recently asked experts where they would currently invest $100,000, and many of them had the same answer: art.
Think you can’t afford a Picasso? In 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, allowing for the securitization of works of art. A company called Masterworks.io has built the largest platform for buying and selling art securities. In the past, you could only buy shares in companies like Apple, but this investing app lets you unlock this powerful investment.
That means you can invest in shares of million-dollar works of art. And it turns out that art can be a wise investment in uncertain times. Here’s why:
- Low correlation to stocks according to Citi
- Contemporary Art Historically Returns 23.2% if inflation is > 3%
- Contemporary Art Awards Outperformed the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)

About me: I was born and raised on Detroit’s Westside, in the hard working, working class, Polish neighborhood of Warrendale. I am a Detroit Public School graduate who fought hard to earn my education. My aspiration to journalism came as a young child when I first began following former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s corruption scandal. My first foray into the world of journalism began with an opportunity to work at the Michigan Journal, where I primarily covered campus and local news throughout the Dearborn community. Eventually I worked my way up to news editor. So, having grown up in a close-knit neighborhood, I know firsthand the importance of delivering messages and telling stories that impact local communities. And as the breaking news editor at Patch for Metro Detroit, it’s my job to deliver that news. So don’t hesitate to contact me at dylan.siw[email protected] with any news tips or your own unique experiences
