The Detroit Institute of Arts

AmericaJR.com has teamed up with The Detroit Institute of Arts to give you the chance to win a pair of general admission tickets to the Detroit Institute of Arts. These tickets are valid anyday that the museum is open. Special exhibits are not included in this contest.

A Vote for Detroit's Favorites is required to enter this contest. Click here to vote for Detroit's Favorites. After voting, write down the winning code then return to this page and type it in the text box below. Without the code, you will be ineligible to win.

The museum covers 658,000 square feet that includes more than 100 galleries, a 1,150-seat auditorium, a 380-seat lecture/recital hall, an art reference library, and a state-of-the-art conservation services laboratory.

The DIA's collection is among the top six in the United States, comprising a multicultural and multinational survey of human creativity from prehistory through the 21st century. The foundation was laid by William Valentiner, a scholar and art historian from Berlin, who was director from 1924 to 1945 . His extensive contacts in Europe, along with support from generous patrons, enabled him to acquire many important works that established the framework of today's collections. Among the notable acquisitions during his tenure are Mexican artist Diego Rivera's Detroit Industry fresco cycle, which Rivera considered his most successful work, and Vincent Van Gogh's Self Portrait, the first van Gogh painting to enter a U.S. museum collection.

A hallmark of the DIA is the diversity of the collection. In addition to outstanding American, European, Modern and Contemporary, and Graphic art, the museum holds significant works of African, Asian, Native American, Oceanic, Islamic, and Ancient art. Among these are the masterpiece sculpture Nail Figure from Zaire and a rare Korean Head of Buddha. In 2000, the DIA established the General Motors Center for African American Art as a curatorial department in order to broaden the museum's collection of African American art.

Hours: Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Detroit Institute of Arts is located at 5200 Woodward Ave. in Detroit, MI 48202.

TEN lucky winners will each receive a pair of general admission tickets to the Detroit Institute of Arts.

To enter: Please enter your name and complete mailing address (including City, State and Zip Code). Then, press Submit. Good Luck!
