DIA director pays a visit
The museum welcomed a special guest in July when Salvador Salort-Pons, diector of the Detroit Institute of Arts, paid a visit and shared some ice cream with a large group of visitors.
Hamtramck was part of the DIA Inside/Out exhibit in which reproductions of famous artworks are placed on buildings around town. One evening Pons led a walking tour of the art works, and as part of the event the group of more than 60 people stopped by the museum for a tasty Ice Cream Social.
Pons later had kind word for Hamtramck in his note in the DIA newsletter.
"Walking and talking about art and life with the people of Hamtramck and beyond was simply a pleasure," Pons said. "The walking art tour, enjoying conversation and exposure to an incredible community has been one of the most meaningful experiences I've had since I moved to the U.S."
