FREE Admission to DIA on Sundays in July & August for Cities Participating in Museum’s Inside Out Project

Detroit Institute of Arts offers FREE Admission Day to Residents of Cities Participating in Museum’s Inside Out Project

The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) announced it will provide residents of cities participating in the museum’s Inside Out program with four (4) FREE general admissions to a DIA Family Sunday. Inside Out brings high quality reproductions of paintings from its collection to the streets and parks of the greater metro Detroit area, showcasing the richness and diversity of the museum’s extensive collection.

The free admission day is a way of thanking the communities for their participation and for helping make Inside Out such a success. The museum hopes that after discovering the reproductions around town, residents will come to the DIA to see the actual work of art, and enjoy some of the special Family Sunday activities, including drop-in workshops, drawing in the galleries, tours, and family-friendly performances.

Here’s how it works: Residents who provide a driver’s license or state ID on the date specially designated for their city will receive four free general admissions to the DIA. Activities are included, but ticketed exhibitions are not.

The Inside Out program comprises four three-month installations: June–August and September–November 2011, and April–June and July–September 2012. Dates for the free general admission for cities participating June–August 2011 are:

- Howell and Brooklyn - July 10
- Livonia - July 17
- Manchester and Milan - July 24
- New Baltimore and Romeo  July 31
- Novi - August 7
- Rochester - August 14
- St. Clair Shores - August 21
- Sterling Heights - August 28

Communities participating in the fall and next year will also receive free general admission to a Family Sunday. Dates will be announced when the next round of works are installed.
