Some of you may have seen some of these U-Hauls around downtown Alpena today…
What were they delivering, might you ask?
Pieces of art through the Detroit Institute of Arts! Alpena was selected as one of three locations up north, along with Mackinac Island and Traverse City, through their Inside Out program, which brings the DIA’s collection to those who may not be able to make the trip down to Detroit.
Through October 31, twelve downtown Alpena businesses and locations will feature high-quality, full-size reproductions of some of art history’s most beloved masterpieces.
Up for a challenge? Try to find all twelve locations!

Serious kudos to the Detroit Institute of Arts and those in downtown Alpena who worked to bring this program to Alpena and for adding some extra beauty to our downtown. Stay tuned for more updates on how the community is taking advantage of and sharing these works while they’re here.
