The Detroit Institute of Arts’ mission is that each visitor finds personal meaning in art. Whether it’s a painting that brings out a smile or chuckle, to a sculpture leads to deep contemplation, the DIA’s expansive collection of 60,000 works has something for everyone. Using a visitor-centered approach to add context to art, the DIA is not just for scholars and art aficionados. It takes humans to truly bring art to life. Each team member—from environmental services to accounting and curatorial—brings unique skills that directly contribute to the DIA’s mission. Team members are the heart of the DIA and are a vital role in the museum’s goal to be one of the world’s most visitor-friendly museums.
