It's Wednesday again! Time for more fabulous waymarks encountered in my wanderings.
The Detroit Institute of Arts has a Fall program Inside|Out where they have placed 80 reproductions of their more famous pieces around 10 Greater Detroit locations. Not only does this bring art to the public, but also brings many visitors to some of the most fabulous historic districts in Southeastern Michigan.
So far, I have made it to 4 of the 10. Here are quick highlights of my travels so far:
|Milford - Woman in an Armchair|
|Milford - The Flat Iron Building|
|Franklin - A Woman|
|Franklin - Shop on Franklin Street|
|Belleville - Bude Sands at Sunset|
|Belleville - Boardwalk|
|Warren - Portrait of a Mughal Prince|
|Warren - Arch at Civic Center|
This program combines so many of my loves: travel, history, Michigan, art, DIA and.... geocaching! As well as erecting 80 pieces of art, the DIA (in association with the local MIGO group) has planted 1 "puzzle cache" at each location.
More adventures coming!
