INSIDE OUT—A Detroit Institute of Arts Exhibit in GH!

Taking place now through Thanksgiving, this self-guided walking tour features reproductions of fifteen notable pieces of art from the Detroit Institute of Arts’ (DIA) collection.  We are thrilled to be selected as 1 of 2 cities in the state to pilot this exhibit outside the metro-Detroit area!

Maps are available here (online) or  at businesses where art is on display

Sign up to volunteer for the DIA Inside Out Exhibit!

Here’s how it works:

  • We will provide you with information about the artwork and the artist (beyond what is displayed on the exhibit signs).
  • Each docent is asked to review the material and be ready to share interesting facts with our visitors for about two minutes.  Note cards are acceptable.
  • Visitors will start at any of the 15 DIA I/O exhibit locations, pick up a walking map, listen to 2 minutes of information and then be directed to the next exhibit.
  • Docents are welcome to bring a lawn chair or stool, as you may have waiting time between visitors.
  • Time commitment:  from 6-8 pm on Friday, October 2
