The Detroit Institute of Arts in Midtown Detroit, Michigan, has one of the largest art collections in the United States. With over 100 galleries, its collection is regarded as among the top six encyclopedic museums in the United States. Its collection spans cultures and art from ancient Egyptian and European works to contemporary art.

The museum contains art from around the world. Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry cycle of frescoes spans the upper and lower levels to surround the central grand marble court of the museum. The armor collection lines the main hall entryway to the grand court. The collection of American art includes such artists as George Bellows, George Caleb Bingham, Mary Cassatt, Frederic Edwin Church, John Singleton Copley, Winslow Homer, Georgia O’Keeffe, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, John Singer Sargent, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Andy Warhol, James McNeill Whistler amongst many other celebrated artists.
