We are pleased to be part of the Detroit Institute of Arts Inside|Out program, which brings high-quality reproductions of masterpieces from the DIA's collection to the streets. There are six pieces displayed in Canton, including Young Woman with a Violin by Italian painter Orazio Gentileschi, on display at the library. The painting, circa 1612, depicts the patron saint of musicians, Cecelia.
The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation sponsors this program.
