DIA presents: “Facing Change: Documenting America/Documenting DETROIT;” on view through Sept. 29

DETROIT, September 3, 2019: The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) presents Facing Change: Documenting America (FCDA), a two-and-a-half-hour community film project focused on Detroit neighborhoods.

The work of 49 Detroit-area photographers from the FCDA’s 2016-18 annual Documenting DETROIT fellowship programs will be on display in the De Salle Photography Gallery through Sunday, September 29. It is free with general admission, which is always free for residents of Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties.

The goal of the FCDA is to empower communities by defining how they are seen, and how they see themselves, through an annual educational fellowship program that partners emerging and beginner local photographers with acclaimed mentors. Using public art, gallery exhibitions, publications, and public events to showcase the work, it aims to recast the city’s narrative, broadcasting it locally and nationally.

FCDA is a 501(c)3 non-profit collective of photojournalists organized in collaboration with the Library of Congress to create a visual resource that raises social awareness and expands public debate.

Museum Hours and Admission: 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Tuesdays–Thursdays, 9 a.m.–10 p.m. Fridays, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. General admission (excludes ticketed exhibitions) is free for Macomb, Oakland and Wayne county residents and DIA members. For all others, $14 for adults, $9 for seniors ages 62+, $8 for college students, $6 for ages 6–17. For membership information, call 313-833-7971.
