DETROIT — The Detroit Institute of Arts plans to open two painting exhibitions on the same date.

The exhibitions start Oct. 22. “Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage” is on view through Jan. 15 and “Monet: Framing Life” runs through March 4.

“Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage” focuses on Frederic Church’s paintings done in the Middle East, Athens and Rome. The exhibition compares pencil drawings and oil studies that Church completed during his trip to paintings he made in his studio.

The exhibition will travel to Reynolda House Museum of Art in North Carolina and Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Connecticut.

“Monet: Framing Life” focuses on “Rounded Flower Bed (Corbeille de fleurs),” a painting in the Detroit museum’s collection. It brings the painting together with other paintings by Monet and fellow impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
