Detroit Institute of Arts

Saturday Jason and I made a visit to the Detroit Institute of Arts – It was truly a stunning place, and I need to go back and spend hours roaming the different rooms and exhibits…  They had works by Van Gogh, Cezanne, Matta, Renoir, Picasso, Warhol,  and even Yoko Ono – and so much more!! I would find artists that I never thought I would find in Michigan.  But the reason we went there was to see the Frescos made by Diego Rivera… and they were stunning, so filled with details and so vivid!

On another note, downtown Detroit is a crazy place… it feels out-worldly and surreal to see building upon building hollowed-up, vacant and abandoned surrounded by huge glass skyscrapers….
