Detroit, MI, Museum of Art
The museum was founded in 1885 and is mostly a fine art museum but also contains objects and artworks from around the world. The genesis of the museum was the result of a Grand Tour by James E. Scripps, a local newspaper tycoon, whose newspaper articles and book inspired the local elite to raise money for a local museum. The collection focuses on fine art and objects from world culture.
