Wayne County Day At The Dia says
The Detroit Institute of Arts is providing free bus transportation to and from the museum on Saturday, April 22 for Wayne County residents as part of “County Days,” offered for people living in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. The popular County Days are made possible by millage support from tri-county residents.

Visitors can browse the collection; see “Thalassa,” the impressive sculpture soaring above the Woodward Ave. lobby by famed New York street artist Caledonia “Callie” Curry, known as Swoon; and catch the “Detroit After Dark: Photographs from the DIA Collection” exhibition during its final weekend. Visitors can also take docent-led tours of the African collection, the Ancient Middle East gallery, the Dutch collection or the Inspired By Italy galleries. The DIA studio will offer an art-making workshop as another activity for visitors.

There are several dining options at the museum. CaféDIA offers entrees, a decked-out salad bar, grill station, sandwiches and scrumptious desserts. Kresge Court diners can enjoy gourmet snacks, sandwiches, salads and desserts. Both restaurants offer a variety of beverages, including Starbucks coffee, beer and wine.

Shopping is always a fun part of the DIA experience. The museum shop carries a selection of art-related items, many of which cannot be found in other area stores.

Buses leave sites from around the county with convenient parking available at each departure location. Roundtrip transportation and admission are free, but reservations are required. To reserve a spot, call 313-833-4005 or go to tickets.dia.org.
