Detroit Institute of Arts Gala
Hi everyone from the DIA gala! It was definitely a night to remember. Interesting entertainment, interesting food, interesting art and people. I took some time away from my own artwork and painting projects to attend this red carpet extravaganza. For those of you viewing my blog and do not live in the Detroit area, the DIA has undergone a major renovation plus expansion. The museum has been under construction for the last three years and was closed a good part of 2007.
On November 10, they rolled out the red carpet (literally) for a fancy get together for anyone who was willing to pay between $2400 to $200 per ticket to attend. Detroit notibles were in attendance. And of course, I had to add my watercolor celebrity status to the mix. Why not, I say. The museum looked the best that I have ever seen.
I hope that this will be just the beginning of more cultural expansion here in Detroit. We need it!
