It's a pretty amazing show. And, I am pretty sure the museum extended it's hours during the Super Bowl. Anyone know more info?

Well, I do know that arrangements were made with the participating museums to keep it through SuperBowl, and I know there are several SBXL events taking place at the DIA.

No info on extended hours though.

It *is* an incredible exhibit. Strangely moving.

I agree, great show. It's a good show even for those who do not enjoy/appreciate the art. The story itself is worth the price of admission. Made me think (hand on chin gazing in the distance)

I go to all of the DIA's special exhibits. The Rodin-Claudel show is one of the best I've ever seen.

I saw the Rodin-Claudel exhibit over Christmas break and it was very captivating, even for someone who knows very little about art. I highly recommend asking for the portable audio device they offer to accompany the tour. It is much easier to go at your own pace that way. This was my first visit to the DIA and I must admit I was impressed and especially fond of the Diego Garcia murals. I even forced my in-laws to come, who hadn't been in the city in over 15 years. They were ecstatic with the progress that has been/being made downtown, especially in the Campus Martus area. Now if I could only come back more often. :-)

As a DIA member, I attend all the special exhibits and I must say, this was one of the best I have seen. Very enjoyable and I recommend it to anybody.

I'll be honest, I simply like all the pretty colors.

Broken... I live near Pensacola, Florida, but my wife's family is from the Rochester area.

Diego Garcia is that ultra-secret listening station in the middle of the Indian Ocean that we lease from the Brits.


I guess it's not so secret any more.

Dave and I went to see this exhibit over the Christmas holidays too, and were totally fascinated by the Claudel-Rodin relationship!! It was a wonderful exhibit...almost too much to see in one visit!!!

FYI...if anyone is interested....the DIA will be showing the film "Camille Claudel" starring Isabel Adjani and Gerard Depardieu on Saturday and Sunday, January 21 and 22, at 1pm in the DIA Lecture Hall. Tickets are $5.

I just saw a flyer today about a slideshow/lecture on the exhibit on January 23 at the Northville Library.

Not without a visa, you know.

Next you'll want to go to Ann Arbor.

second_ave, just out of curiosity -- do you know who was giving the lecture at the northville library? The library website just says, "representatives from the DIA". I was just curious as to if it's docents, curatorial staff...

It was very nice. Better than I expected. I personally was more impressed with Ms Claudel's work than Rodin's work. Plus she did her own sculpting (creating the original in bronze or marbel). Very interesting - make sure you get the headphone tour.

I'm not too sure who will be giving the lecture. The flyer just caught my eye on my way out . . .
