FREE Preview of the DIA's "Fakes, Forgery, and Mysteries" at the Berkley Public Library 1/11/11

I just love, love, LOVE free stuff - especially about art. I found this through this week's email from theCity of Berkley. You, too can sign up for a free email from the city HERE.

On Tuesday, January 11 at 7:00 pm the library will offer a preview of the Detroit Institute of Arts’ new exhibit, “Fakes, Forgery, and Mysteries.” The exhibition highlights some of the mistakes and other discoveries made through the years regarding artist attribution, authenticity, and value of works in the DIA’s collection. It illustrates how the DIA constantly re-assesses artworks through research, science, and technology, revealing an aspect of the museum’s work rarely seen by the public. Space is limited so advance registration is required. Call the library at 248-658-3440 to register. This program is presented by the Friends of the Library.
