MUNISING – Munising is a tourist city and to keep tourists visiting, the city has teamed up with the Detroit Institute of Arts for a unique attraction.
It’s called the Inside Out program and was created by the DIA to bring high-quality reproductions of art to outdoor venues throughout the state. Munising is currently the only community in the U.P. that has this program.
“It’s kind of a circle tour, art tour around Munising down from the boat dock through the downtown and then back again,” said Kathy Reynolds, Executive Director of the Alger County Chamber and Munising Downtown Development Authority. “It’s a variety of works of art that are inside the Detroit Institute of Arts and they’re brought to the outside. There’s really no particular theme, it’s varied artists and varied types of art.”
This is the first year Munising has partnered with the DIA for the Inside Out program. Maps with the locations of the paintings are available at the Chamber’s office and will soon be made available on the Chamber’s website.
