The Detroit Institute of Arts has once again selected Novi as one of the 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."
Novi will host the following works of art from April to June:
- The Marquise de Vintimille as Aurora by Jean Marc Nattier
- Hard Ball III by Robert Moskowitz
- Talking Oak by William Maw Egley
- Study for Birds by Albert Moore
- In the Garden by Mary Cassatt
- The Lily Pond by Charles Harry Eaton
The installations' exact locations have yet to be determined.
Novi residents will also be given free admission to the DIA on Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19. Visitors will receive a 10 percent discount in Café DIA and the museum shop, $1 off Detroit Film Theatre (DFT) tickets, and free admission to showings of the DFT 101 film series.
Novi also hosted Inside|Out installations in the summer of 2011, including Self-Portrait by Vincent van Gogh and Woman in an Armchair by Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
