The Detroit Institute of Arts

Here’s an article from today’s World Socialist Web Site by arts editor David Walsh, The Working Class and the Defense of the Detroit Institute of Arts. 

I was only there once in the late 1990s. I had gone to Detroit to meet Martin Glaberman who lived close to the Institute. We had lunch there near the Diego Rivera fresco.

With Detroit’s financial collapse, the sale of the DIA is likely, and it’s hard to imagine better words than Walsh’s:

One can feel only repugnance that the fate of these precious works lies in the unclean hands of financial looters and their lackeys.
