Summer 2022
The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) has selected Troy as one of the communities for its 2022 InsideǀOut project, which brings high-quality art reproductions to outdoor venues throughout metro Detroit. This summer, you’ll find Asafo Flag (1863) by an unknown Fante artist at the Village. Come see this work of art, then join us for a flag exhibit, watercolor classes, talks on art and art museums, a scavenger hunt-style fitness challenge that sends you around town to find other InsideǀOut installations, and more!
