The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is one of my favorite places in the world! Its art and architecture remind me of museums I’ve visited in Italy and France, and its interactive displays keep everything lively and fun. Add a free dance party in the famous Rivera Court with live music and refreshments, and it’s more than a cultural field trip, it’s an experience.
And that’s what you will have on Friday, Oct. 23 if you sign up for College Night at the DIA. You also be among the first to see 30 Americans, a new DIA exhibit featuring work by contemporary African American artists, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, a New York graffiti artist turned pop art rebel immortalized in a film by the same name (see it before you go!) Everything is free, including roundtrip bus transportation from South and Center campuses.
This trip will surely fill up fast, so register as soon as you can with Student Life and Leadership: South Campus, K251, 586.445.7446 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Center Campus, P127, 586.286.2242, or email@example.com.
Does anyone like the DIA as much as I do?
