Rust belt romance

. May 21, 2012.

The last decade has been a tricky time for Detroit. Foreclosure. Political scandal. The auto industry hit a low point, and will not be able to carry the city's economy anymore. Between 2000 and 2010, the city lost 25 percent of its population, but hope renews with college-educated young professionals ages 24-35 living downtown. That demographic has increased by 59 percent in those ten years, according to the 2010 census. The times are certainly changing. Detroit Revealed: Photographs, 2000-2010, the exhibition which runs from October 16, 2011-April 8, 2012 at the Detroit Institute of Arts, covers all angles of Detroit during the first decade of the new millennium through the cameras of eight photographers. The artists and their styles are as diverse as the city and its culture, with themes bouncing from underground youth culture to failing factories to DIY art and music. 5200 Woodward Ave. 313-833-7900. www.dia.org.
