Detroit Institute of Arts Annual Gala to Celebrate Museum’s 125th Anniversary
Long-time supporters Marianne and Alan Schwartz to be honored at annual fundraiser
Detroit, MI – The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) presents “DIA@125, a Gala” on Saturday, Nov. 13 from 6 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. This year’s annual fundraiser celebrates the museum’s 125th anniversary, and includes a special tribute to long-time DIA supporters Marianne and Alan Schwartz.

“It is extremely satisfying to be at the helm of the DIA as it reaches its 125th year, and our gala will be a worthy celebration,” said Graham W. J. Beal, DIA director. “We are especially pleased to honor Marianne and Alan Schwartz, who, for more than 50 years have generously donated time, money and works of art that have enriched the museum in so many ways.”

Co-chairs for this year’s gala are Gayle Camden of Grosse Pointe,
and Fair Radom of Bloomfield Hills.

Tickets range from $2500 to $125. This year, $2500 tickets include an exclusive pre-gala cocktail party at the newly renovated Manoogian Mansion, hosted by Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and his wife, Yvette, on Wednesday, Sept. 15.

The evening’s décor will focus on the museum’s architecture and collection, and entertainment will include a nostalgic look back at the museum throughout the years to the present. Catering for the cocktail reception and sit-down dinner is by Forte Belanger in Troy.
