DIA's Inside|Out Program Coming to Dearborn Heights

The city is among 25 throughout Metro Detroit chosen to host outdoor art installations this spring and summer.

The Detroit Institute of Arts has selected Dearborn Heights among the 25 Metro area communities that will feature Inside|Out outdoor art installations this spring and summer.

Dearborn had the program last summer.

"Now in its fourth year, Inside|Out brings reproductions of masterpieces from the DIA’s collection to the streets of metro Detroit," a DIA press release said. "Inside|Out aims to connect with audiences outside the museum walls in places where they live, work and play."

Dearborn Heights will host Inside|Out summer installations from April through June (see below for a complete list of participating communities); which artworks the city will host has yet to be determined.

The Inside|Out program is funded through a partnership with the Miami-based John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, one of whose goals is to foster the arts.

Residents of participating Inside|Out communities are also invited to visit the museum for free on a "community weekend," during which they will receive free admission, as well as a 10 percent discount in the Cafe DIA and museum shop, $1 off Detroit Film Theatre tickets and free admission to showings of the DFT 101 film series.

Dearborn Heights' community weekend date is yet to be determined.
