Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Rivera Court at the DIA.This week the millage for the Detroit Institute of Arts passed in Oakland, Wayne and Macomb Counties. Our amazing art museum is essential for the revitalization of Detroit so this is great for the entire region.

However, this probably wasn’t the best week to give away a family four pack of tickets to the DIA as everyone in the tri-county area now get free admission. With that said, congrats Aviva (@AvivaDetroit)! You’ve won the tickets to the DIA! Be sure to check out the Picasso & Matisse exhibit.
