Detroit Institute of Arts
View 60,000 amazing works of art at the Detroit Institute of the Arts. 100 galleries are filled with sculptures, paintings, and other artworks. The Thinker, the famous sculpture by Auguste Rodin is placed near the entrance. Permanent collections in the museum include Islamic, Flemish, pre-Columbian, European, African, Asian, and American art. Cultural events are held throughout the year at the auditorium and recital hall.
Beautiful buidling with a great art collection. One of the top 10 largest in the world I believe. Attached is the historic Detroit Film Theatre with many interesting offerings. Across the street is the Detroit Public Library Main Branch--another fine building. This area, the DIA very much included, gives a great taste of Detroit's culture and architecture. Two blocks west is Wayne State University's Central Mall.
The Detroit Institute of Arts is one of the foremost art museums in the country. The permanent collection is wonderful and the museum brings in interesting traveling exhibitions constantly. The Diego Rivera mural which pays homage to the Detroit autoworkers is a particular treat.
The museum has been renovating different areas for years and will have even more display space soon. I can't wait.
