The Detroit Institute of Arts will install more than 90 reproductions of artwork from the museum’s collection in outdoor venues throughout metro Detroit.
“We’re very excited to bring Inside|Out to 10 communities this summer, including three venues that will be participating for the first time, with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation,” says Kathryn Diamond, director of community relations for the DIA. “Highlights this season will be exhibitions in Southwest Detroit community gardens and the Huron River Water Trail.”
Beginning July 24, DIA officials will bring artwork to outdoor areas such as Grosse Ile, Southwest Detroit Community Gardens, and Wolverine Lake, along with locations in Eastpointe, Roseville, Clarkston, and Farmington Hills.
The DIA has also partnered with Southwest Detroit Environmental Vision, a nonprofit working to improve the economy and environment, to bring Inside|Out community gardens in Southwest Detroit.
Over the past five years, the DIA has installed high-quality reproductions in more than 100 communities.
Once the installation is complete, maps will be available at dia.org/insideout.
