About the Museum

The Detroit Institute of Arts has one of the most extensive and treasured art collections in the US, with more than 65,000 works spanning the history of artistic practice globally from the earliest civilisations to the present day. The DIA is especially well known for its Detroit Industry cycle of frescoes painted inside the museum’s central hall by the pioneering Mexican modernist Diego Rivera, depicting labourers at Ford Motor Company’s River Rouge Plant. Throughout the 20th century the DIA acquired numerous notable European works including Bruegel the Elder’s The Wedding Dance, The Annunciation by Rembrandt, a van Gogh self-portrait and Matisse’s The Window.
