Detroit Art City: The Detroit Institute of Arts Story


Taking viewers behind the scenes of the institution at the center of Detroit’s bankruptcy case, DETROIT ART CITY uncovers the story beyond the headlines. In a dramatic twist, 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.
