DIA’s Inside/Out program brings inspiration to Rochester

The Detroit Institute of Arts’ new program, Inside/Out, brings
reproductions of the museum’s most famed works to outdoor displays
throughout southeastern Michigan. Founded last year as part of the
DIA’s 125th anniversary, the program’s site coordinator, Michelle
Hauske, says seeing the art in a new environment is like
experiencing it for the first time all over again.

After the positive feedback from members of the Rochester community,the
city of Rochester decided to participate again. A total of seven pieces
will be scattered along the Paint Creek and Clinton River trails and
throughout the downtown streets June through August. During Rochester’s
Restaurant Week, beginning August 11, there will be several special
events taking place in honor of the program.

Inside/Out will include a total of 80 pieces that will be gathered into
mini-installations of six or seven, on display at almost a dozen cities
at a time including Rochester and Novi. The art will rotate every three
months, ending in September 2012.
