|The Detroit Institute of Fine Arts. Funny, they don't look broke.|
|Though museum officials once labeled Diego Rivera and his murals as "detestable" in both style and content, his works highlighting the DIA's collection are as much a part |
of the "soul" of the city as Motown or the Ford Motor Company.

|Self-portrait in a Straw Hat, 1887,|
Vincent van Gogh, might be the
first great artist to depart Detroit.
|Thought provoking, cutting edge, profound--the institute's contemporary |
art collection would probably be safe from the auction block.
