General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler all threw down a cool $26 million to help save the Detroit Institute of Arts Museum’s permanent collection.
$26 million (what was given) ÷ $816 million dollars (what the DIA’s works are worth) = 3% (the proverbial drop in the bucket).
Don’t worry: The DIA is hosting a Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo exhibition next year.
That’ll reel ‘em in — here’s hoping Detroit hired Salma Hayek to sit as an installation drinking milk. You go, Frida!
