A Day for Detroit

I haven't posted in some time, but this is important. Tyler Green, the creator/journalist of Modern Art Notes has declared today A Day for Detroit in support of the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). There is the possibility that much of DIA's important art collection may be sold as part of the city's bankruptcy proceedings. In support of the DIA, I have selected McSorley's Bar by John Sloan as one of my favorite works.

Please go to Mr. Green's blog and read more in support of this treasured institution. There are may ways you can support. Perhaps, like me, you can become a member of the DIA (I'll post my membership confirmation tomorrow). The city of Detroit needs it, the people of Detroit need it, the DIA needs it.

Go Tigers!
