The Detroit Institute of Arts’ Partners in Public Art (PIPA) program is a collaboration with municipalities and organizations throughout southeast Michigan to co-create community-driven, highly visible public works of art.
This program helps people explore their sense of community through a collaborative design and creation process, producing works of public art that express the unique stories and interests of each community.
See selected projects from Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties below.
Oakland County Projects
PIPA is a popular component of the DIA’s artmaking and community engagement efforts. The DIA collaborates with six communities each year on public art projects, two in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb Counties, respectively.
