Are you looking for something fun to do this summer? Well, look no further than your own backyard (well, near your yard, anyway). The Detroit Insitute of Arts has some great exhibits to see this summer and time is flying by. You won't want to miss the Five Spanish Masterpieces or the Pattie Smith Camera Solo exhibit! See you there!

The dragon turn by Shane Peacock will captivate readers, even if they have not read the first four cases in the award winnning The Boy Sherlock Holmes series. Actually, Sherlock is an astute teen, not boy, in these books and in addition to solving crimes Scotland Yard cannot, he is dealing with male teen coming-of-age issues. Malicious magicians, affairs d'amour gone awry, a missing body, terrifying creatures, and hidden identities keep Sherlock and readers searching for clues that will illuminate what is really going on behind the scenes of The Egyptian Hall. Adding to Sherlock's agony, is his conviction that a female's guiles has spurred him to win the freedom of a wizard who really is the murderer. Set in London in the mid 1800's, this series paints a very realistic picture of that era and a portrait of the legendary Sherlock during his formative years.

Picasso’s Melancholy Woman returns to the DIA this summer after being on loan to several prestigious museums. In celebration of its return, the DIA is hosting Five Spanish Masterpieces by the likes of Goya, El Greco, Dali and more. The exhibit actually contains much more than just five masterworks.
We're also celebrating our participation in the DIA Inside|Out project, that is. Have you seen our lovely Young Woman with a Violin by Italian artist Orazio Gentileschi?
