A Day for Detroit

The Detroit Institute of Art collection is in one word, incredible.  From the great Old Masters to the contemporaries some of the best can be found at the DIA.  I grew up outside of Detroit and had the opportunity to regularly visit the DIA.  These visits were highly influential in my work.  The DIA and Detroit need your support.  Here are some of my favorites.  Please check out http://blogs.artinfo.com/modernartnotes/ for more highlights of the collection and to learn about "A Day for Detroit".  Also here,
