"Fakes, Forgeries and Mysteries"

AmericaJR.com has teamed up with the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) to give you the chance to win a pair of VIP passes to see the new exhibit "Fakes, Forgeries and Mysteries." These passes also include general admission to view the entire museum. The exhibit opens on Nov. 21 and runs through April 10, 2011. The VIP passes are valid for any day the museum is open through April 3.

Fakes, Forgeries and Mysteries highlights some of the mistakes and other discoveries made through the years regarding artist attribution, authenticity and value of works in the DIA’s collection. The exhibition illustrates how the DIA constantly re-assesses artworks through research, science, and technology, revealing an aspect of the museum’s work rarely seen by the public.

The show includes 60 paintings, sculptures, photographs, prints, drawings and decorative arts from diverse cultures—European, African, American, Asian, Islamic and Ancient Near Eastern. This diversity of objects provides opportunities to explore issues such as who really created a particular work of art, when it was made, if it is real or fake and other research mysteries at the DIA.

This exhibition has been organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts. Generous support has been provided by Chase. Additional support has been provided by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, National Endowment for the Arts, and the City of Detroit.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Final admission to the exhibition is one hour prior to museum closing. No refunds / exchanges.

The DIA is located at 5200 Woodward Avenue in Detroit.

Ten lucky winners will each receive a pair of tickets to see "Fakes, Forgeries and Mysteries" at the DIA.

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


Drawings: Dec. 16, 30; Jan. 6, 20; Other dates TBA
