Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) unveils revitalized Kresge Court

The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) has unveiled a revitalized Kresge Court. The redesign transforms one of the museum’s most architecturally stunning spaces into a comfortable place where visitors can eat, drink, relax, socialize and meet informally.

Kresge Court is now a more engaging venue for those who live, study and work in metropolitan Detroit, with a fixed floor plan that will create new rhythms of activity in the space. There will be more intentional seating areas for work, casual discussion, small coffeehouse-type meetings and more intimate dining. Sundays will feature solo acoustic performers from 1 to 4 p.m., and a “cultural concierge” will be on hand to provide information on DIA and Midtown happenings.

The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA), one of the premier art museums in the United States, is home to more than 60,000 works that comprise a multicultural survey of human creativity from ancient times through the 21st century. From the first Van Gogh painting to enter a U.S. museum (Self-Portrait, 1887), to Diego Rivera’s world-renowned Detroit Industry murals (1932–33), the DIA’s collection is known for its quality, range, and depth. The DIA’s mission is to create opportunities for all visitors to find personal meaning in art.
