The World Socialist Web Site visited the College for Creative Studies to speak to students about the proposed selloff of artwork from the Detroit Institute of Arts. An art-centric college, it attracts talented students from around the region. The CCS campus is located just across the street from the world-class museum.
The sentiment on the campus is overwhelmingly opposed to the announced plan of Detroit’s emergency manager to put the assets of the DIA “on the table” for sale to pay off the city’s creditors.
Worldwide support for campaign to defend DIA: here.

The DIA, which regularly hosts school visits and runs outreach programs to area schools and communities, has long had a powerful impact on the cultural level of young people: here.
Workers speak out against threat to sell off the DIA: here.
