A month without art 

Aug. 1 through Sept. 6, the Detroit Institute of Arts will be closed to the public for renovation. There are no financial reasons for closing, it’s simply to put a cushion in its ongoing renovation schedule. Pete Van Dyke, communications coordinator at the DIA, says, "There are certain things we can’t get done unless we shut it down for an extended period of time. We need to put up scaffolding, without having to take it down the next day, and cover the floors." So spend your free time outdoors!
