Play episode

Over the past five years, the Detroit Institute of Arts has installed reproductions in over 100 communities and engaged thousands of metro Detroiters. During the 2015 season, eight venues will be participating for the first time, including Midtown Detroit; the Osborn neighborhood in Detroit; Grosse Ile; Memphis; Ortonville; White Lake; Flat Rock; and Wolverine Lake.

More than 80 reproductions will be in 10 communities from August to October, starting off in Clarkston this weekend. Other participating cities include Detroit Community Gardens, Detroit RiverWalk, Eastpointe & Roseville, Farmington Hills, Grosse Ile, Huron River Water Trail, Macomb Corners, South Lyon, and Wolverine Lake.

The DIA encourages each community to plan activities centered around its Inside|Out works. Previous events have included bike and walking tours, bus tours, talks at local libraries, festivals and more.
