Free Art! Dearborn Residents Get Complimentary DIA Admission This Sunday
Show a Dearborn ID to get four passes for free.
A trip to the Detroit Institute of Arts can only be made better one way: if it's free.
This Sunday, July 29, Dearborn residents will get just that. By showing a driver’s license or state I.D. with a Dearborn address, residents will receive four general admission passes good for Sunday.
The DIA is open 10 a.m. -5 p.m. on Sundays and is located at 5200 Woodward Ave. in Detroit.
Dearborn residents have this special opportunity because Dearborn is one of the cities participating in the DIA’s Inside|Out program, which places replicas of painting masterpieces in outdoor areas visible to the public.
The free admission day is the DIA’s way of thanking Dearborn for helping make Inside|Out such a success.
Dearborn has eight Inside|Out installations:
- Ford Field: View of the Tiber with the Castel Sant' Angelo by Bernardo Bellotto
- Bryant Library: Dancers in a Green Room by Edgar Degas
- Starbucks: Konigsee by William Wex
- Bailey's Pub and Grille: Luncheon with Figures in Masquerade Dress by Jean Francois de Troy
- Henry Ford Centennial Library: Mosquito Nets by John Singer Sargent
- Ford Community and Performing Arts Center: Nocturne in Black and Gold by James Abbott McNeill Whistler
- Dearborn City Hall: Banks of the Oise at Auvers by Vincent van Gogh
- Green Brain Comics: Judith and Her Maidservant with the Head of Holofernes by Artemisia Gentileschi
The program will run through Sept. 30 in Dearborn. Learn more at dia.org/insideout.
