Tickets for Diego and Frida: On Sale Now

Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo were an explosive couple. He carried a pistol. She carried a flask. He romanticized Detroit. She rejected it. But what they shared was a belief in communism, a thirst for tequila and a passion for each other. Discover how they left their mark on Detroit.

Vincent Willem van Gogh: Bank of the Oise at Auvers

Vincent Willem van Gogh

Bank of the Oise at Auvers, 1890

“I love the way van Gogh painted this piece. The first time I saw this painting, it was the pops of color among the blues and greens that caught my attention. His fast and bold brushstrokes make it stand out and you can see every detail that was put into this piece.”

Alisha Merrow, Marketing & PR Assistant
