When we are not roofing Detroit Institute of Arts(DIA), we also like to visit there. Of course, roofing Detroit Institute of Arts is our main concern, but there’s also a lot to love in Detroit other than work all the time. It has one of the largest and most important art collections in the United States. That’s just one of the reasons Detroit Roofers is proud to have a reputation for excelling at roofing Detroit Institute of Arts. It is in the Midtown neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan. The institute is made up of two buildings: the original museum building, which was designed by Paul Philippe Cret and built in 1927, and a newer building that was built next to it and covered in glass. The original building has a central atrium with a skylight and several galleries that lead off of it. There are European paintings on the second floor, African, American Indian, Asian, and Oceanic art on the third floor, and Hispanic art on the first floor. The first addition, in 1928, gave the museum more space for displays. This made it possible to show more than 2 million items which had not been possible before. The main entrance leads into an eight-story atrium. People enter through bronze doors flanked by sculptures by Malvina Hoffman that show allegorical figures representing painting (History) with an easel and palette in one hand and sculpture (Art) with a hammer raised high in the other. On either side are stairs that lead down to two large exhibition halls. Each hall has about 15 exhibitions a year that show masterpieces from all of the major Western cultures over the last four centuries, as well as important works from Africa, Asia, and Latin America, and contemporary art from all over the world, including works that were commissioned by the museum. It has more than 100 galleries and is spread out over 658,000 square feet. In 2007, a major renovation and expansion project added 58,000 square feet. The DIA collection is thought to be one of the best six in the United States. It has a wide range of art from ancient Egypt and Europe to modern art from around the world. A 2014 appraisal put the value of its art collection at up to $8.1 billion, which is a lot of money. The DIA campus is in Detroit’s Cultural Center Historic District, which is about 2 miles north of downtown and near Wayne State University. It is across the street from the Detroit Public Library and close to Wayne State University. Roofing Detroit Institute of Arts makes our jobs much more enjoyable!
