Founded in 1883, the Detroit Institute of Arts is one of the finest art museums in the United States and is well-known for its fine holdings in American art of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Visitors to the site will want to begin by examining the Collection section, which features selected images from the Institute's holdings, most notably selected works from the Hudson River School and the American Impressionists. Scholars will want to examine the Research Library and Archives section of the site, which features an online catalogue of the 175,000 volumes held by the Library. For visitors hoping to visit the Institute in person, detailed information on their current and ongoing exhibitions is provided by the site, along with an events calendar featuring some of the activities at the Institute, which include storytelling sessions for children and music performances.
