Last Chance to See Sacred Places – Upcoming Photography@DIA

To all the Detroit Sacred Places members and others interested in photography here in Detroit and at the DIA, Kenro Izu Sacred Places will close on Sunday, Oct. 12, 2008. If you haven’t seen the exhibition, the coming week may be your last chance. 

I hope you will join us for the next exhibition of photography, In the Company of Artists, which will open Wednesday, November 19, 2008. The exhibition features portraits of artists from the nineteenth century through the present day. All works are from the DIA’s permanent collection with a supplement of nineteenth century material from Novi area collectors Leonard and Jean Walle.
