Tyler Green Modern Art Notes

A Day for Detroit I

Pin It


Jan van Eyck, Saint Jerome in His Study, c. 1435.

In an effort to spotlight the collections at the Detroit Institute of Arts that would be lost if the threatened sale of art in collections at the DIA are sold, all day long Modern Art Notes and many other sites will be spotlight art at the DIA. I’ll be featuring roughly an artwork an hour for the next ten hours. I hope this will help  spotlight both the collection at the DIA and the access we have to Detroit’s art. I think that the more people think about what’s at the DIA, the more concerned they’ll be about what could happen there.

How can you help support the DIA? Share artwork here on MAN and at other sites with your friends. If you live in Michigan, tell your elected officials that the future of Detroit is important to you and that you don’t support a fire sale of the city’s future. Best of all: Join me in becoming a member of the Detroit Institute of Arts.

To read more about what we’re doing here, check out these stories in the Detroit Free Press and in the Detroit News.

Sites participating in today’s action include:

I hope other websites, critics, art museums and more will join us throughout the day in spotlight art at the DIA. (And please email me at tylergreendc -at- yahoo.com if you do!)
