    Established in 1958 by six locals, Academy Art Museum (AAM) has a permanent collection that holds works from such figures as Francisco Goya, Mary Cassatt, Ansel Adams and Pablo Picasso, along with contemporary artists like Zanele Muholi, Graciela Iturbide and James Turrell.

    Founded in 1885, the DIA’s collection boasts more than 65,000 works housed in a 658,000-square-foot Beaux-Arts building.  Not all the museum’s art stays in the building. Currently, some works are part of “Rethinking Monuments: American Sculptures in Its Time,” an exhibit touring Michigan through the Art Bridges Initiative.
