Detroit Institute of Arts Announces 2024 Inside|Out Locations in Wayne County

The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) has recently announced the selection of several Wayne County communities for the 2024 Inside|Out program. This program is renowned for bringing high-quality reproductions of artworks from the DIA’s collection to outdoor venues across Metro Detroit. The initiative aims to deepen engagement between the museum and the diverse audiences of Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties.

“We’re delighted to celebrate the 15th year of this popular program in collaboration with our 2024 Wayne County community partners,” said Julie McFarland, Executive Director of Public Affairs and Engagement at the DIA. “We hope residents will enjoy having a DIA experience close to home and be inspired to visit the Museum to see the reproductions from their community installations in person and more.”

Detroit has truly transformed into a bustling hub of art and culture, with its roots deeply embedded in both historic and modern creativity. From the legendary Detroit Institute of Arts, home to some of the most precious art collections in the nation, to the city’s pivotal role in the birth of Motown and techno music, there’s always something stirring in the air. What’s really exciting is seeing art leap off the gallery walls and into the streets—literally. Street art in Detroit is more than just decoration; it’s a bold expression of the city’s spirit, turning ordinary spaces into vibrant canvases. The DIA’s Inside|Out program brings masterpiece reproductions right into local communities, making art part of everyday life. This blend of music, art, and community isn’t just about revitalization but about making Detroit a living, breathing center of culture that invites everyone to be part of its ongoing story.

The North Rosedale Park neighborhood in Detroit is among the highlighted communities participating this year. Significantly, North Rosedale Park is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2024, which aligns well with the Inside|Out initiative as the neighborhood gears up for year-long festive celebrations.

Additional Wayne County communities involved include:

  • City of Wayne
  • Dearborn
  • Redford Township
  • Romulus
  • Wayne County Community College District

“As our neighborhood celebrates 100 years, we witness these art masterpieces take their place amidst the greenery of our park,” remarked Beverly Fredrick, President of the North Rosedale Park Civic Association. “We find joy in encountering unexpected beauty enhancing our surroundings. In their presence, we are reminded of the power of art to uplift and inspire us.”

Inside|Out is made possible through the support of the Tri-County millage investment in the DIA. Residents of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties benefit not only from the presence of art in their communities but also from free admission to the DIA itself.
