Detroit Struggles To Re-Build A Bankrupt City Amidst Poverty And Blight

DETROIT, MI - SEPTEMBER 03: A man looks at a Diego Rivera mural at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) on September 3, 2013 in Detroit, Michigan. Detroit, once known as powerhouse for creativity, engineering and manufacturing thanks to the many automotive companies based here, had to declare bankruptcy last month after decades of a shrinking population and lack of jobs. As the city government struggles for a way to pay off its debts, the idea of selling off some of the DIA's collection has been suggested. The DIA was founded in 1885, covered over 600,000 square feet and is home to thousands of pieces of art spanning continents and millenia. (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)
