DIA Program on Mackinac Island



Published:

DETROIT — The Detroit Institute of Arts is bringing Inside|Out to Mackinac Island this summer. Now in its third year, Inside|Out brings high-quality reproductions of masterpieces from the DIA’s collection to outdoor public spaces. Nine reproductions will be on view within walking or bike-riding distance on the grounds of the Grand Hotel and Marquette Park near the Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum until September 3. The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is sponsoring the program.

“We’re delighted to debut Inside|Out on Mackinac Island this year,” said Graham W. J. Beal, DIA director. “The program has been immensely popular in metro Detroit and we’re excited to share it with northern Michigan residents and summer visitors to Mackinac Island.”

The names of the reproductions and their locations are featured on a downloadable map on the DIA’s website, www.dia.org/insideout. The works are reproductions of some of the DIA’s most popular masterpieces, such as Claude Monet’s Gladioli and Vincent van Gogh’s The Postman. Inside|Out is currently installed in 11 metro Detroit communities, where the reproductions are on view until June 30. Each community has seven to 10 works clustered within the downtown area. Participating communities plan activities centered around their Inside|Out works. Previous events have included a wine-tasting bus tour, bike and walking tours and talks at local libraries.

The DIA also offers free museum admission to a Family Sunday for residents of Inside|Out communities. This encourages residents to come to the DIA to experience “their” works of art in person and enjoy the variety of activities the museum offers.
