The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA), one of the premier art museums in the United States, is home to more than 65,000 works that comprise a multicultural survey of human creativity from ancient times through the 21st century. Notable acquisitions include the first Van Gogh painting to enter a U.S. museum (Self-Portrait, 1887), and The Wedding Dance (Pieter Bruegel the Elder, 1566).  The DIA’s collection is known for its quality, range and depth. We will start with a behind-the scenes tour of the DIA Research Library & Archives, one of the largest museum libraries in the nation. The tour will include highlights from our collection of primary sources and rare books, and a walk through of our storage spaces. The visit to the Research Library & Archives will be followed by a short docent-led tour of the museum, to include Rivera Court and our world-renowned Detroit Industry Murals.
