Coming Soon: The Henrietta and Alvin Weisberg Lobby

We are pleased to announce that we are beginning the renovation of the main lobby of our building. It will be necessary to close the main entrance to the building for the next two months in order to perform this work. Please enter through the doors to the right and left of the main entrance in order to access the Chapel or the Sanctuary, or through the doors at the Berman Center for Jewish Education.

This project is generously funded by Henrietta and Alvin Weisberg.

Empty Nesters Sunday in the D – August 27

Art of Rebellion: Black Art of the Civil Rights Movement

Sunday, August 27, 2017
Tour departs from Rivera Court at 1:00 p.m.
Detroit Institute of Arts, 5200 Woodward Avenue, Detroit

A special guided tour with Valerie Mercer, Curator of the General Motors Center for African-American Art , and organizer of the DIA exhibit. Explore powerful artworks by African American artists who formed collectives during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. These collectives, made up of artists working together in distinct groups, created art specifically for African American audiences that asserted black identity and racial justice.

This exhibition includes 34 paintings, sculptures, installations and photographs produced by artists working both collectively and independently to address social and political issues surrounding the Civil Rights Movement and today. Situated within the story of these collectives is the Detroit rebellion of 1967.

Exhibit is free with museum admission, no charge for Tri-county residents.
Optional visit to the Michigan Jewish Food Festival at the Eastern Market either prior to or following the DIA tour.

For RSVP or additional information, please contact the Empty Nesters at
