Detroit made the art news...

I get excited when I read a national art news journal and see Detroit mentioned for anything art related.
This was posted on artnet.com:

The Detroit Institute of Arts will host "Camille Claudel and Rodin: Fateful Encounter," Oct. 9, 2005-Feb. 5, 2006, a show focusing on the artistic dialogue between these two fin de siècle French artists. Detroit is the only U.S. city to host the major exhibition, organized by the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Quebec and Paris's Musée Rodin, featuring 58 sculptures by Rodin and 62 by Claudel. The show will include favorites such as Claudel's anguished and dramatic Sakuntala, as well as The Gates of Hell and The Thinker by Rodin. It will also bring together images that the two artists made of one another and feature rare photographs, drawings and letters that illuminate their artistic and romantic relationship.
