PUBLIC ART ALONG THE RIVERFRONT CONTINUES TO ENGAGE VISITORS
|Release Date: September 10, 2012|
The Conservancy’s popular public art program, which was launched in 2011, continues to expand and gain momentum while gaining fans along the waterfront.
In May, the Conservancy celebrated the formal launch of the program and its four pieces of modern art with an early evening reception attended by nearly 70 guests including Conservancy board and committee members, artists, art collectors, art and educational institutions, Riviere28 supporters and members of the Detroit Institute of Art’s Founder’s Junior Council.
The Conservancy is also pleased to have been chosen once again as a site to feature selections from the popular DIA Inside/Out program. Now in its third year, the DIA Inside/Out program features replicas of famous works of art found at the DIA, which are temporarily on display in unexpected public places. Two reproduction pieces are currently on display near Rivard Plaza.
