Metroblogging the DIA: An Army in Blue

The member preview weekend was staffed by an army of volunteers in signature DIA blue “Ask Me” t-shirts. Even though the directive is written on the backs of the shirt, it is not advisable that you ask a question while your questionee’s back is turned. The volunteers in the exhibit halls were trained experts on the art in their vicinity. During the last year 45 volunteers underwent 60 hours of training before undergoing specialized training based on their area of interest. I had the pleasure of speaking to one retired school teacher from West Bloomfield. The DIA’s Speaker Bureau and Art to the Schools program extend the DIA’s resources beyond the museum and into the community.
