Detroit Institute of Arts Participates in High-Tech Treasure Hunting Game
DETROIT, MI.- In conjunction with the Detroit Institute of Arts’ (DIA) Inside|Out project, the DIA has launched a high-tech treasure hunting game on www.geocaching.com. To play the game, called Geocaching, players use a GPS device to locate containers hidden outdoors, called geocaches, and then share the experience online.

The Inside|Out project has brought framed reproductions of 40 of the DIA’s most famous works to the streets and parks of Wayne, Macomb, Oakland, and Washtenaw counties. At eight of the Inside|Out locations, players can find geocaches containing fun treasures like free admission tickets, stickers, temporary tattoos, post cards, and other DIA giveaways. Those who complete the series by visiting all eight locations will receive a special prize at the last location, the DIA. The special prize will be available through Tuesday, Nov. 30.

The museum choose Geocaching as a fun way to further engage the community in the Inside|Out project by encouraging people to explore the areas and to meet fellow cachers. On behalf of the museum, the local Geocaching community placed the geocaches at the eight Inside|Out locations, among them Orion Oaks Dog Park and Metro Beach Metropark. To begin the treasure hunt, players must register at www.geocaching.com and visit https://sites.google.com/site/diainsideout/ for links to all eight geocache locations.
