In August 2012, voters in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties approve a 0.2 millage (property tax) to fund the Detroit Institute of Arts. The DIA entered into service agreements with each county’s Art Authority to provide these benefits to county residents:

  • Free unlimited general museum admission
  • Discounted special exhibition tickets
  • Free school field trips with free bus transportation
  • Free group visits for seniors on Thursdays, with exclusive programs, and free bus transportation
  • Expanded teacher professional development programs
  • Curriculum development with school systems
  • Expanded community partnerships
  • DIA Away
