Auburn Hills, MI—July 24, 2017—The City of Auburn Hills, a dynamic community committed to innovation and growth, is pleased to announce that we are once again hosting seven pieces of art that will hang on businesses and city property from July through the end of October in partnership with the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA).  The DIA will be taking high-quality masterpieces and will be displaying them Downtown through the summer for residents and visitors to explore and appreciate.

The DIA Inside/Outside Program has been running in the Metro-Detroit area for eight years and this is the second time Auburn Hills has been chosen to participate. This program brings high-quality replicas of art from all over the world to communities.  The key of this program is to invite communities to engage with each other, as art has the ability to bring so many people together. This is the first year that the DIA has collaborated with another museum to bring Michiganders a different experience. The Charles H. Wright Museum has graciously given a piece to expand diversity into the collection.

As part of the kick-off of the DIA program, we invite the public to join us on July 28th beginning at 5:30 PM for networking.  Visitors can enjoy an evening stroll as they listen to the docents talk about Vincent van Gogh’s portrait of Postman Roulin, the Still Life: A Letter Rack by Edwart Collyer, and more. The walk will depart from The Den at 6:00 PM and will go around the Downtown, ending at Michigan by the Bottle where there will be an afterglow at 7:00 PM.

The portraits will be on display the rest of the summer and into the fall so that residents and visitors can enjoy artwork on their own at any time. Feel free to visit these art pieces during a lunch break, with your family on a weekend, or take them in while on a run. Their beauty is also displayed for those who visit the downtown area for work and play.
