automakers help DIA

General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler all threw down a cool $26 million to help save the Detroit Institute of Arts Museum’s permanent collection.

Today’s math:

$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!
