Supporting the DIA's ongoing efforts to improve and expand its world-renowned American art collection

Associates of the American Wing
The Associates of the American Wing, an auxiliary of The Detroit Institute of Arts, works with DIA curators of American art to stimulate and encourage interest in American art, and to support the DIA’s on-going efforts to improve and expand its world-renowned collection of American art.



AAW members enjoy special programs dealing with American painting, sculpture, and decorative arts of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries. These events include public lectures, private tours of DIA exhibitions, “behind-the-scenes” programs at the DIA, receptions, dinners, and trips to other museums and private collections.

You are cordially invited to join the Associates of the American Wing, and to participate in all the exciting projects and programs the AAW will sponsor this year.

Mr. Richard A. Manoogian
