Exploring European works of art from the Middle Ages through the mid-20th Century
The Visiting Committee for European Sculpture and Decorative Arts explores European works of art from the Middle Ages through the mid 20th century in all their variety: the picture frame as well as the picture, the sculpture and the table it sits on, the carpet on the floor and the parquet underneath. Our diverse membership includes active collectors, scholars, and enthusiasts committed to increasing their knowledge of the decorative arts and sculpture through varied programs and travel opportunities. With our funds, the Visiting Committee supports programs and acquisitions for the Detroit Institute of Arts' world-renowned collections.
