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.
