Detroit Institute of Arts - Janice's Story | THE COMEBACK CITY

Detroit: Discover treasures around every corner.

–Janice McCord
Interpretive Programs Volunteer, Detroit Institute of Arts

Few things compare to the Detroit Institute of Arts’ sun-soaked Rivera Court, but the things that do can be found just a few feet away, among the DIA’s collection of masterpieces. Beyond the museum, Detroit has its own collection of treasures including exciting culture, active nightlife and unique events waiting to be discovered. Dine at a fine establishment like Michael Symon’s Roast, then take in a show at the magnificent Fox Theatre. Or take in a baseball game and grab a coney dog. Whatever your tastes, in The D, amazing is waiting around every corner. Discover Detroit, America’s great comeback city.
