Be a Part of the Art!

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.


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!
