Detroit Institute to Gain Ground on Building Project
Detroit Institute of Arts.

DETROIT, MI.- In order to create some breathing room in its construction schedule, the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) will briefly close to the public from Aug. 1 to Sept. 6. While many will be enjoying their summer vacations, DIA staff and construction crews will be working hard to gain ground on the renovation schedule. Currently, renovation work inside the museum is confined to activities that are not unduly disruptive to visitors. The temporary closing will enable crews to work inside the building unimpeded by public hours.

August is traditionally the month with the least attendance at the museum, as many people travel or are busy with outdoor activities. “While many of our visitors are on vacation, we will be working full-speed to gain ground on our renovation project,” said Graham W. J. Beal, DIA director. “Although five weeks is really a very short time, it will go a long way toward moving our project forward. In the meantime, we encourage visitors to stay in touch through our new-and-improved Web site, and to take advantage of all that is going on during June and July.”

June and July - There is still much to enjoy at the museum during June and July. The popular exhibition Beyond Big: Oversized Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, which was recently featured on A&E’s Breakfast with the Arts, is on view through July 31, and is free with museum admission. The DIA’s “Greatest Hits” continue to be displayed in the thematic Remix galleries. Visitors can also enjoy the always-fun Friday nights and weekend programs that feature live music, artist demonstrations, drop-in workshops, storytelling, tours and family performances. Summer camps are also offered in July. Visit for a complete schedule.
