The DIA creates experiences both inside the museum, and out, that help people make personal connections with art. If you'd like to learn more about being a part of the art, you can reach us by email at or by phone at 313.833.2356.

DIA Away

DIA Away is a community engagement project that is scheduled three months in advance. With this project the DIA extends the creative experience beyond the walls of the museum to our neighbors in Southeast Michigan. We support schools and senior citizens and work with cities, townships and villages to inspire their citizens. For more information, please contact


Inside|Out brings reproductions of great treasures from the DIA to our community. Discover them all around town or come visit your works of art in their natural habitat!
