DETROIT (WKZO) -- The leadership of the Detroit Institute of Arts is pleased with the fact that federal mediators have initiated, what they call, a positive conversation around the need to protect the museum collection and provide relief and revitalization for the city of Detroit.  At a meeting with the mediators earlier this week, the DIA expressed enthusiastic support for the work that has been done to date, and pledged to help refine and implement the plan in the weeks ahead.

The plan encourages national and local foundations, as well as other funding sources, to create a mechanism for providing cash for the city, while ensuring the present and future safety of the DIA collection.
