The Detroit Institute of Arts has selected New Baltimore again as one of 25 Metro area communities that will feature Inside|Out outdoor art installations this spring and summer.
"Now in its fourth year, Inside|Out brings reproductions of masterpieces from the DIA’s collection to the streets of metro Detroit," a DIA press release said. "Inside|Out aims to connect with audiences outside the museum walls in places where they live, work and play."
New Baltimore will host the following works of art from April to June.
- "Berenice Reproaching Ptolomy," Jean-Joseph Taillasson
- "Bank of the Oise," Vincent Van Gogh
- "Cafe Scene in Paris," Henri Gervex
- "Eleonora of Toledo," Agnolo Bronzino
- "Allegory of Hope," Allesandro Turchi
- "Konigsee," Wilhelm Wex
The installations' exact locations have yet to be determined.
New this year, residents of participating Inside|Out communities are invited to visit the museum for free on a so-called "community weekend," during which they will receive free admission, as well as a 10 percent discount in the Cafe DIA and museum shop, $1 off Detroit Film Theatre tickets and free admission to showings of the DFT 101 film series. New Baltimore's community weekend will be May 4-5.
The Inside|Out program is funded through a partnership with the Miami-based John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, one of whose goals is to foster the arts.
