A Day for Detroit

Cotopaxi, Frederic Edwin Church 1862 Held by DIA (Used Without Permission)
Now I stay out of politics on the Blog, but even a some one with a minor interest in fine culture is sickened by the idea of auctioning off pieces of art from the Detroit Institute of Arts due to the city's money issues.  A Day for Detroit is a series of blog posts around the web highlighting pieces of art which could be lost to public view if such an auction happened.

Cotopaxi is my favorite painting at the DIA.  It is just overwhelming as it is 45 by 85 inches of fantastic color and detail.  Check out the DIA website to see some more of their great pieces.
