DIA’s Facade- a nod to mythos and Rodin’s The Thinker as intro energy
Cotopaxi (volcano in Ecuador), Oil 1862, by Frederic Church is flanked by The Lost Pleiad, 1888 & The Blind Girl from Pompei by Randolph Rogers. Intricate details invite staring. The DIA tiled foyer is grand with interesting symbology.

Confession- I do not have artist info for the last 2 pieces, but thought they were too interesting not to share, the first a boy’s room and expose about how the things we own reflect who we are, the other a whimsical bronze statue.
I highly encourage you to visit The Detroit Institute of Arts and experience their impressive collection for yourself.
