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:

  • : View of the Tiber with the Castel Sant' Angelo by Bernardo Bellotto
  • : Dancers in a Green Room by Edgar Degas
  • : Konigsee by William Wex
  • : Luncheon with Figures in Masquerade Dress by Jean Francois de Troy
  • : Mosquito Nets by John Singer Sargent
  • : Nocturne in Black and Gold by James Abbott McNeill Whistler
  • : Banks of the Oise at Auvers by Vincent van Gogh
  • : 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.

This is just another redistribution of wealth!! I don't go to the DIA, don't want to go to the DIA & those that want to go should pay admission just like every other museum. No way would I vote to raise my own taxes for something I never plan on using so someone else can go for free. Why should I be paying their entrance fee??
