Monet: Framing Life Educator Preview Open House

Come kick off the school year with DIA staff and your fellow educators and get a sneak peek to the DIA's newest special exhibition Monet: Framing Life. The exhibition centers on the DIA’s only Monet painting, Rounded Flower Bed (Corbeille de fleurs), formerly known as Gladioli. Experience the DIA’s painting together with 10 other paintings by Monet and fellow impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and discover the story behind the creation of Rounded Flower Bed (Corbeille de fleurs) and how it fits into the history of Monet’s work and the Impressionist movement.  

This exclusive opportunity allows you to visit the exhibition before scheduling a field trip and preview the exhibition for free before it opens to the general public. Light refreshments will be served. 

Pre-registration for this event is required and space is limited. Admission is free for teachers who reside in or teach in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties. All other educators can sign up for a DIA Educator Pass to receive free general admission to the museum. 

This exhibition has been organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts and made possible by the Bonnie Ann Larson Modern European Masters Series. Generous corporate support has been provided by Park West Foundation, JPMorgan Chase, Altair, English Gardens, and Grand Hotel—Mackinac Island.
