Detroit Institute of Arts Gala

December 30, 2019


Leland Calloway & Anthony Smith, Drs. Charles & Anne Boyd, Suzanne Shank Werdlow & Sean Werdlow, Celeste Watkins-Hayes & Rejji Hayes, Catherine & Nathan Forbes, and Arn & Nancy Tellem teamed up to co-chair the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) Annual Gala, “Detroit Collects: Selections of African American Art from Private Collections.” Proceeds will benefit the museum’s endowment fund as part of an initiative called Detroit Dedicated, aimed at raising critical funds to support the DIA’s African American art collection. The DIA is the first museum in the United States to have a curatorial department devoted to African American art.
