A DANDY DAY AT DIA

The third time was the charm, meaning that after two previous attempts to visit Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA), we finally succeeded on Thursday, August 20.  And, yes, as previously posted, I played my clarinet in DIA’s parking lot after our three hours of arting it up.  And, you should know, DIA is taking all necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of visitors.  We had our temperatures checked before being admitted, and we were politely instructed to maintain safe social distancing and follow the designated routes through the galleries.  We four—Natalie, Arthur and Joe and myself—managed quite well for the three hours we allotted for our visit.  We lamented mightily that the magnificent Kresge Court was still off limits, so we did not get to repair there for espresso and lounging about.  Oh well.  We saw so, so much wonderful art that all we can say is that we must return again and again and again.  You should too.  Check out DIA at: http://www.dia.org.  And now check out some of what we saw Thursday:

We had Rivera Court to ourselves Thursday afternoon.
