Greetings from Detroit Public TV.
Taking viewers behind the scenes of the cultural institution at the center of Detroit's bankruptcy case, Detroit Art City: The DIA Story uncovers the story behind the headlines.
The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is recognized as one of the top six comprehensive art museums in the U.S. Yet unlike most major cultural institutions elsewhere, an appropriate operating endowment was never established for the DIA. The unique story of Detroit Art City goes inside the DIA’s millage campaign and August 2012 primary election that placed the fate of the museum into the hands of voters in Detroit’s tri-county area. Narrated by Pulitzer Prize winning writer and Detroit radio host Angelo B. Henderson, this very real snapshot of the status and future of the arts in Detroit provides a rare window into the nation’s most talked about art museum. Airing Wednesday, 12/11 at 9pm ET.
