LINCOLN PARK – From Van Gogh to Orozco, the city will host five outdoor art reproduction installations from the Detroit Institute of Arts, through the late November, on Fort Street and Southfield Road.
The DIA’s Inside Out program, now in its 13th year, brings high quality reproductions from the museum’s collection to communities in the greater metropolitan Detroit area, in the hope of reaching a more diverse group of people and interesting them in its art.
Lincoln Park is hosting five reproductions, with all of the installations within walking distance: Three on the south side of eastbound Southfield Road, and two on opposite sides of Fort Street.
The three Southfield Road installations are: “Hard Ball III” by Robert Moskowitz, east of the library; a photo, “The Palms Parade Crowd,” a vintage Woodward Avenue image, by Russ Marshall, outside City Hall; and Van Gogh’s “Portrait of the Postman Roulin” on the Historical Museum lawn.
Two of the installations are on Fort Street: “Poultry Yard” by Melchior de Hondecoeter, on the grounds of the new Farmers Market, next to the Park Restaurant, in the 1700 block of Fort Street, and “Mexican Pueblo” by Jose Clemente Orozco, between Albert’s Furniture and the Moose Lodge in the 1600 block of Fort Street.
