Detroit Institute of Arts

One of the reasons to include Detroit in our travel schedule was our wish to visit the Detroit Institute of Arts.
This museum has one of the largest collections of art in the United States.
The DIA is one of the 6 top museums in the USA with an encyclopaedic collection which spans the globe from ancient Egyptian and European works to contemporary art.
The museum was opened in a temporary building on 16 April 1885, after which it was transferred to a neoclassical building in 1888.
The neoclassical building was replaced in 1922 by a somewhat more modern and larger building in which one of the copies of the Rodin Thinker was given a prominent place, as can be seen on the main photo and the first workshop.
In 2007 a major renovation and expansion project was completed.

I start with three photographs in the Gert’s category: "Nothing Special".
An observation in front of the entrance of the museum with the thinker of Rodin, a man in red and a woman in white in the leading roles.
