Inside|Out Call for Participation

Wednesday, October 09, 2013 – Wednesday, October 30, 2013

The Detroit Institute of Arts is looking for communities that are interested in participating in the 2014 Inside|Out program. Inside|Out brings high-quality reproductions of masterpieces from the DIA’s collection to the streets and parks of metro-Detroit. The program allows residents far and wide to become more familiar with DIA’s collection and also serves as a placemaking exercise, by capitalizing on the community’s assets, both potential and realized.

The installations will run from: April to July (Spring Installation) and August to October (Summer Installation). Each community will receive 5-7 reproductions clustered within walking or bike-riding distance of each other. The DIA would like to hear from city representatives, Downtown Development Authorities, arts organizations, and other community groups that would like to have their city participate. Collaborations within a community are highly encouraged. Participation requests must be submitted by October 30, 2013. The form will help us determine which communities will participate in the upcoming Inside|Out.

Best submissions will include:
• List of collaborators (libraries, schools, community groups, etc.)
• Your specific goals for the program
• How Inside|Out will help add value to current festivals/events
• How would you like Inside|Out to change your community’s relationship with the DIA
