DIA Inside Out on the Michigan Air Line Trail

From the Museum to the Trail


The Michigan Air Line Trail is excited to be hosting four installations of the popular Detroit Institute of Art Inside Out program. The DIA has been placing full-size reproductions of the museum's collection in parks, towns and trails for years now. Come and see for yourself!


The four locations are, going east to west:


The junction of the Air Line and the M-5 Metro Trail, just west of the M-5 bridge

The Walled Lake Trailhead, near the Pontiac Trail crossing

The ShearWater Trailhead, on the trail

Just outside Gunnar Mettala Park in Wixom, on the trail


Be part of your own Art Exhibition!


Take a selfie with your favorite piece, and be sure to tag it with #AirLineInsideOut and #DIAInsideOut, so we can include it as part of our collection. If you include the tags, we will contact you and send you a limited-edition refrigerator magnet (while stock lasts).
