The NEW DIA

AmericaJR.com has teamed up with The Detroit Institute of Arts to give you the chance to win a pair of general admission tickets. We found some extra tickets and we're giving them away to you! (This time, no voting is required -- this contest is open to everyone).

The New DIA was recently voted as Detroit's Favorite Museum on AmericaJR.com.

After six years in the making, it's finally here, the biggest cultural event of 2007—the Grand Opening of the NEW DIA! On November 23rd, the museum will open with more gallery space, more art and more fun! Admission is free all weekend long. It's going to be a marathon opening weekend as the DIA will stay open for 32 hours straight—from 10 a.m., November 23rd to 6 p.m., November 24th.

The renovation project began in 2001, and has provided the DIA with extensive infrastructure upgrades, increased gallery space, expanded visitor amenities, an improved traffic pattern throughout the museum, and a new granite façade on the North and South Wings. Upgrades to the air handling, electrical, temperature and humidity control systems were critical to provide the optimal environment for the collection.

In total the project added nearly 58,000 additional square feet, including the new 31,000 square-foot South Wing addition.

The DIA’s newly reinstalled galleries also thoughtfully integrate technology that responds to the needs and expectations of the 21st-century visitor, while enhancing their interaction with the art. Visitors can have a “virtual” dining experience in 18th century Europe or dance with a life-size video of an African ceremony. Digital books will allow the viewer to see multiple pages of a book that before would have only one or two pages displayed at a time. In addition, visitors will be able to use a handheld computer to take a multimedia tour of Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry murals at their own pace and level of interest.

Thirteen lucky winners will each receive a pair of tickets to The NEW DIA.

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