Detroit's skyline, streets and scenes at the city's bars and clubs are the subject of a photography exhibition opening this fall at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
"Detroit After Dark: Photographs from the DIA Collection" starts Oct. 21 and will be on view through April 23, 2017.
The exhibition includes photos showing architectural studies, street scenes and graffiti as well as spots such as Baker's Keyboard Lounge, the Grande Ballroom and The Gold Dollar.
Most of the photographers are from Detroit. A supplement of work from Paris and New York will also be on view adjacent to the gallery.

DIA Curator of Photography Nancy Barr came up with the idea for the exhibition after seeing work by photographers showing the night and the Detroit-area music scene.
