DIA Extends Hours to Accommodate Demand for 'Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus' Exhibit
The Detroit Institute of Arts' (DIA) current exhibition, "Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus," has proven to be hugely popular. As a result the museum has announced it will extend its hours to give the public more chances to see the show.
Both the museum and the exhibit will be open during these extended hours, which include:
Saturdays and Sundays, Jan. 21, 22, 28 and 29: 10 a.m.–8 p.m.
Saturdays, Feb. 4 and 11: 10 a.m.–10 p.m.
Sundays, Feb. 5 and 12: 10 a.m.–8 p.m.
The last day of "Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus" is Sunday, Feb. 12. The museum encourages people not to wait until the last week to see it.
“Our experience shows that people tend to wait until the last minute to see exhibitions,” said Graham W. J. Beal, DIA director. “We really do not want anyone to be disappointed that they couldn’t get a ticket and strongly suggest that people purchase or reserve tickets in advance so they are guaranteed entrance.”
Tickets cost $16 for adults; $12 per person for groups of 15 or more; $8 for youths ages 6-17; and free for DIA members.
Tickets are timed and include museum admission and a multimedia tour. Final entry into the exhibition is one hour prior to museum closing. Those buying tickets online can print them out in advance; that way they'll avoid waiting in the Admissions line. Tickets are available at www.dia.org, at the DIA Box Office, or by calling 313-833-4005. For group visits of 15 or more, reservations are required; call 313-833-1292.
The DIA is located at 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit.
