DIA reproductions to appear on streets and sidewalks of Ann Arbor this spring
If I were to mention artworks on the streets and sidewalks of Ann Arbor, you'd automatically think I was talking about the Art Fair. But this spring, replicas of paintings and artworks usually on the walls of the Detroit Institute of Arts will find their way to Ann Arbor, courtesy of the Inside/Out program.
Inside|Out temporarily displays full-sized, high-quality reproductions of DIA paintings, placed in outdoor settings.
From April to June, seven reproductions will be installed in Ann Arbor. All the artworks will be displayed within walking distance of each other, so that people can tour all the works on foot. Maps will make the artworks easy to locate, and local activities and programs will be planned in conjunction with the display. Details about the selected artworks, locations, and events will be announced in March.
Ann Arbor will be joining Ypsilanti as a particpant in the program; Ypsilanti hosted the program once in the past and will do so again this year.
This is the fourth year of the DIA’s Inside|Out program, and Ann Arbor will be one of 13 communities participating this spring. Additional information about the DIA program can be found at the Inside|Out Facebook page: www.facebook.com/dia.insideout.
