National Art Museum Day 2019
November 9th was National Art Museum Day and since we at LoveBook love a good random holiday, a few members of our team decided to celebrate by visiting the Detroit Institute of Arts.
The DIA was originally founded in 1885 and was later moved due to its rapid expansion. It reopened in 1927. This museum was referred to as the "temple of art" with more than 65,000 works, and the DIA's collection ranks among the top six in the United States.
Among notable pieces are Mexican-artist Diego Rivera's Detroit Industry Fresco Cycle, which Rivera considered his most successful work, as well as Cotopaxi by Frederic Church.
Unfortunately while we tried to take some pictures, security said they had to stay on the walls.
Did anyone else celebrate National Art Museum Day? Let us know!
