FREE Bus Transportation to Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) for Macomb County Residents on 10/10

Detroit Institute of Arts says “Leave the Driving -- and Parking -- to Us” for Macomb County Day...

The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is providing free bus transportation to and from the museum on Saturday, October 10th  for Macomb County residents as part of “County Days,” offered four times per year for residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.

The popular County Days are made possible by support from tri-county residents.

Visitors can browse the collection, see the DIA’s “guest of honor”—“Rembrandt’s Self Portrait with Shaded Eyes”—on loan from the Leiden Collection, New York, and see the newly refurbished Ancient Middle East gallery. A public tour at 1 p.m. is available, as well as an art-making activity in the art studio.

There are several dining options at the museum. CaféDIA offers entrees, a decked-out salad bar, grill station, sandwiches and scrumptious desserts. Kresge Court diners can enjoy gourmet snacks, sandwiches, salads and desserts. Both restaurants offer a variety of beverages, including Starbucks coffee, beer and wine.

Shopping is always a fun part of the DIA experience. The museum shop carries a selection of art-related items, many of which cannot be found in other area stores.

Round trip transportation and admission is FREE, but reservations are required. God to or call 313-833-4005.
