The DIA is open once again

After closing on August 1 to complete some more of the renovation work it began in 2001, the Detroit Institute of Arts has once again opened its doors.

Although the complete renovation will not be finished until 2007, the good news is that the museum is open again. The Greatest Hits remains, and the museum will also play host to two exciting exhibitions this fall – The Art of Screenprint and Camille Claudel and Rodin: Fateful Encounter.

The museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but is open from 10 am – 4 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 10 am – 9 pm on Fridays, and from 10 am – 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

    the DIA is one of detroit’s greatest treasure… most people don’t realize how much good art we have right in our own city… we have significant pieces from monet, seraut, van gogh, picasso and multiple other greats; something other cities can’t boast about… check it out!!!

    I can’t wait to see my veiled lady again. That is one of the most beautiful sculptures I have ever seen…correction…it IS the most beautiful sculpture I have seen in person…I would love to see some of Berninis work someday
