'Craig Fahle Show:' A Younger Generation Helps the DIA Acquire Detroit African American Art

February 18, 2021, 12:31 PM

The Detroit Institute of Arts has always had prominent donors. But we don't often hear about Founders Junior Council (FJC), young professionals who promote the DIA and raise money through fundraisers and social events.

The group recently donated more than $1 million, with a healthy chunk marked for buying art from Detroit-based African American artists for the DIA's permanent collection.

The "Craig Fahle Show" on Deadline Detroit talks with the group's president, Angela Rogensues, and vice president, Nate Wallace, to learn more about what they're up to.
