DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Institute of Arts is planning the latest edition of a program that places reproductions of artwork outdoors in southeastern Michigan.

This year the museum is collaborating for "Inside/Out" to include 10 reproductions of objects from the collection of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

Reproductions from both museums will be in 11 communities from April to July and in 10 other venues from August to October. Each community will have seven to 12 clustered within walking or biking distance. Exact locations will be posted online.

Detroit's Lafayette Park, the Detroit International Wildlife Refuge, Allen Park and Oakland County's Highland Township are participating for the first time.

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation sponsors the program, now in its eighth year.
