Officials with the Detroit Institute of Arts’ are expanding their program that displays reproductions of artworks in outdoor settings, to three cities outside of Michigan. Museums in Akron, Philadelphia and Miami are the first to adopt the program, known as “Inside|Out”. Through a Knight Foundation grant, the DIA is creating a guide that other groups can use to make the program their own. The DIA’s Director of Community Relations Kathryn Dimond says the museum initially launched Inside|Out in 2010 as a way to celebrate the museum’s 125th anniversary.
