Graham Beal: How Art Can Support Urban Regeneration
Wednesday, December 11 | 12:00 noon
Graham Beal, Director of the Detroit Institute of Art, will speak about the transformation of one of this country’s finest encyclopedic art museums into an institution focused on engaging the non-specialist visitor; how these efforts helped the museum achieve financial stability for the first time in four decades; and now, how the same factors are helping protect the collection in the face of the City of Detroit’s bankruptcy. He will also address the ways in which the art museum and a growing community of artists can contribute to Detroit’s regeneration.
