Detroit Institute of Arts Is Taking It to the Streets


DETROIT, MI.- As part of its 125th anniversary celebration, the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA), in partnership with SM/ART Editions, presents Inside|Out, which takes 40 framed, life-size digital reproductions of art from its collection to the streets and parks of Wayne, Macomb, Oakland and Washtenaw counties. DIA: Inside|Out aims to connect with audiences outside the museum walls, treating metro Detroit as a grand, open-air gallery. Each work is displayed in an ornate frame, accompanied by an information plaque. Some of the reproductions will be installed on walls and others on free-standing posts. Several of the works have already been installed, with the rest expected to be up by early September. They will remain on view through November. “We are thrilled to be able to bring some of our most significant works of art to our local communities in the places where people do business and spend their leisure time,” said Graha
