Detroit Institute of the Arts!

Yesterday we took a trip to Detroit to the Art Institute or DIA.

It was such a great day trip! I had never been before and am very excited to go back again!

Some highlights of the trip included:

Vangoh's self-portrait:
Degas dancers:

And an amazing exhibit on the fashion photography of Richard Avedon... Photographer for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar!

Here are a couple of my favorite prints from the show:

To learn more about Avedon and his work you can check out the website for his foundation:

I do recommend taking a day and traveling to your local art museum! I really think you'll enjoy it, just like my family and I did!

Happy 2010!


  1. nice blog and it looks like you had a great day!

  2. RICHARD AVEDON IS MY FAVORITE PHOTOGRAPHER! When I first saw his work in my Photo 101 class I fell in love with his portraiture :)
