DIA Picks Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti for Inside|Out Program

The cities are among 25 throughout southeast Michigan chosen to host outdoor art installations this spring and summer.

The Detroit Institute of Arts has selected Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti among the 25 southeast Michigan communities that will host Inside|Out outdoor art installations this spring and summer.

"Now in its fourth year, Inside|Out brings reproductions of masterpieces from the DIA’s collection to the streets of metro Detroit," a DIA press release said. "Inside|Out aims to connect with audiences outside the museum walls in places where they live, work and play."

Ann Arbor will host the following Inside|Out spring installations from April to June (see below for a complete list of participating communities).

  • "Head of a Woman," Egyptian
  • "Madame Paul Poirson," John Singer Sargent
  • "Indian Summer," Joseph Francis Cropsey
  • "Syria by the Sea," Frederic Edwin Church
  • "The Window," Henri Matisse
  • "The Fruit Vendor," Il Pensionate del Saraceni
  • "Judith and Her Maidservant," Artemsia Genileschi

Ypsilanti will host yet-to-be-determined artworks from July to August.

The Inside|Out program is funded through a partnership with the Miami-based John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, one of whose goals is to foster the arts.

New this year, residents of participating Inside|Out communities are invited to visit the museum for free on a so-called "community weekend," during which they will receive free admission, as well as a 10 percent discount in the Cafe DIA and museum shop, $1 off Detroit Film Theatre tickets and free admission to showings of the DFT 101 film series.

Ann Arbor's community weekend dates will be April 20-21; Ypsilanti's dates have yet to be determined.
