Three Cheers for Detroit!

Posted on April 30, 2014

Detroit has experienced a bucket-load — and then some — of less-than-desirable media attention in recent months. Whether about the city’s bankruptcy filing or the related vulnerability of the Detroit Institute of Arts‘ collection, the news from the Motor City hasn’t exactly been a promotion for tourism.

I’m a Detroit booster and believe that tourism — specifically cultural tourism — is among the activities that will help the city regain its luster.

Today is the start of Day #2 of a six-day Detroit and environs adventure for an intrepid group of Woodson Art Museum travelers.
