Seven reproductions of works housed in the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) have been installed in Farmington Hills, as part of the DIA Inside|Out program.
A set of paintings was also installed in Farmington this week. Some of the Farmington Hills paintings are free-standing, others are bolted to the sides of public buildings. All are weather-proofed and will remain in place through June 30.
The Farmington Hills Cultural Arts Division and Farmington Downtown Development Authority (DDA) have planned a number of events around the exhibit. Farmington's events have been announced; news of Farmington Hills events is expected next week.
