Inside/Outside exhibit coming to Romulus

The cities of Romulus and Westland, along with the Wayne County Community College District will be among those participating in the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) 2021 edition of Inside|Out program which brings high-quality reproductions of masterpieces to outdoor venues.

Inside|Out is a popular component of the DIA community engagement efforts, said Salvador Salort-Pons, DIA director. 

During the past 11 years, the museum has partnered with more than 100 communities and engaged tens of thousands of residents, he added. 

“The Inside|Out program allows us a unique way to engage with tri-county residents by bringing art from the DIA into the communities in which they live,” said  Salort-Pons. 

“This year providing a way to bring communities together in a safe, outdoor fashion outside of the museum walls has a whole new meaning,” he added. 

The reproductions will be in 26 communities from May through October. Each community will display approximately four to 10 reproductions, clustered within walking or biking distance.
