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.
