DIA Inside|Out Program is here in Plymouth!

April 2017 to July 2017

PARC-Plymouth Arts & Recreation Complex is excited to announce that Plymouth has been selected by the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) as one of eleven communities in Metro Detroit to host its popular Inside│Out program from April to July, 2017.  Inside│Out brings high-quality reproductions of masterpieces from the museum’s collection to outdoor venues during the spring and summer months.

“We’re absolutely delighted that PARC’s effort on behalf of Plymouth to host Inside|Out was accepted by the world-class DIA,” said PARC Vice President Mark Malcolm.  “PARC and the other terrific collaborating organizations, including PCAC, the Library, the Historical Museum, the Michigan Philharmonic, the Penn Theatre, and the DDA are now busy planning fun and educational supporting events to help maximize the community’s engagement and enjoyment.  Stay tuned!”

PARC is the destination in Plymouth to experience quality art, theater, music, fitness, culinary and recreation activities. We are thrilled by the addition of Inside│Out to our rapidly expanding range of opportunities for residents to engage in Plymouth’s lively Arts scene.
