"Detroit Skyline with Water Tower #3 (from the Belle Isle Bridge" by Russ Marshall

AmericaJR’s Gloria and Jerome Rzucidlo recently visited the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) to check out their new exhibit, “Russ Marshall: Detroit Photographs, 1958-2008.” The Detroit Institute of Arts presents a survey of over 90 photographs by Russ Marshall whose black-and-white imagery was inspired by the Motor City’s streets, architecture, music and factory workers for over 50 years. Marshall interprets over five decades of blue-collar life, Detroit and its environs through photographs that capture the city’s heart and soul sometimes reading like a melancholy poem but most often as an empathetic narrative of resilient people, places and times now past.

Visit the DIA at 5200 Woodward Avenue Detroit, MI. Advanced tickets are required. For more info about the exhibit, go to
