Sara: Hello, Creeps! Tonight we have a special post about one of my favorite places to visit, The Detroit Institute of Arts/the DIA. It's hard to imagine that Jeremy has been in Michigan for just over four years now, and I hadn't taken him to the DIA, especially since I used to go quite often in the past. I guess it took the pandemic, and the lack of safe activities to look into going. First and foremost, the DIA did a pretty decent job of creating a safe environment. The hours are limited, and although the museum is free, you have to purchase tickets ahead of time in order to RSVP your place/so they can limit the amount of attendees. The museum itself wasn't crowded at all, although the cafe, as well as many water fountains were closed off. Masks we obviously required at all times, and there were arrows directing the foot traffic through each exhibit. To add to the confusion, there is currently a Detroit Style: Car Design in the Motor City exhibit happening, which caused certain art pieces to be moved into different areas. However, we had no fear, as all of the staff were quick to ask us if we needed help locating what we were looking for.
We spent about two-three hours wandering the building, and as a heads up, this will be a photo heavy post! We tried to limit the amount of pictures taken, but it was hard because there are so many beautiful pieces.
