Pontiac, Michigan -- Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson released the following statement about today's developments regarding the Detroit Institute of Arts collection:
"Any deal that protects the DIA's collection from being sold off while potentially helping city workers and retirees is a positive development. Of course, the devil is always in the details and we will monitor this latest development closely to ensure Oakland County taxpayers are protected. It's time for the state to step up and protect this regional asset, which is beneficial to Michigan."
