Detroit has long been a fertile ground for artists and other creative individuals. In connection with the Detroit Institute of Arts' upcoming presentation of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit, Detroiters Paint Detroit: 1930s will showcase Detroit urban landscape paintings by local artists. The paintings reflect the city as it was in the 1930s, when Diego and Frida visited the DIA and spent a year creating art in Detroit. Additionally, these paintings offer a snapshot of what the Detroit art "scene" was like during that time.
