Detroit Institute of Arts offers Free Admission Day to Residents of Cities Participating in Museum’s Inside|Out Project
Tuesday, June 28, 2011
(Detroit)—The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) announced it will provide residents of cities participating in the museum’s Inside|Out program with four free general admissions to a DIA Family Sunday. Inside|Out brings high quality reproductions of paintings from its collection to the streets and parks of the greater metro Detroit area, showcasing the richness and diversity of the museum’s extensive collection.
The free admission day is a way of thanking the communities for their participation and for helping make Inside|Out such a success. The museum hopes that after discovering the reproductions around town, residents will come to the DIA to see the actual work of art, and enjoy some of the special Family Sunday activities, including drop-in workshops, drawing in the galleries, tours, and family-friendly performances.
Here’s how it works: Residents who provide a driver’s license or state ID on the date specially designated for their city will receive four free general admissions to the DIA. Activities are included, but ticketed exhibitions are not.
|Howell and Brooklyn||July 10|
|Manchester and Milan||July 24|
|New Baltimore and Romeo||July 31|
|St. Clair Shores||August 21|
|Sterling Heights||August 28|
Communities participating in the fall and next year will also receive free general admission to a Family Sunday. Dates will be announced when the next round of works are installed.
Museum hours are 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m.–10 p.m. Fridays, and 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, $4 for ages 6-17, and free for DIA members. For membership information call 313-833-7971.
