Get Goghing

To the editor:

The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) annual Inside/Out Program brings high resolution reproductions from the DIA’s collection to outdoor venues throughout Michigan. This year the city of Hancock was selected as the Upper Peninsula site.

Seven full-scale images have been installed throughout downtown Hancock, in green spaces, and on the waterfront. Interactive maps are available at City Hall, the Community Arts Center, and other locations.

Art works on display: Tiled Niche, Ustad Mahammad Husayn; In the Garden, Mary Cassatt; Tarantella at Mergellina, Filippo Falciatore; Movement #27, Kwesi Owusu-Ankomah; Animals in a Landscape, Franz Marc; The Trappers’ Return, George Caleb Bingham; and Self Portrait, Vincent Van Gogh.

This project is a partnership of the Copper Country Community Arts, Hancock City Hall, and Hancock Public Schools. Special thanks to Cynthia Cote and Deborah Mann, two dynamic forces instrumental in bringing this one-of-a-kind experience to our city.

The installation will remain up through mid-October, so you have plenty of time to get outside and get into art. When are you Goghing?
