(WXYZ) — It's been a difficult two years for so many families, businesses, and organizations due to the pandemic, and though the virus is still part of our lives, we are slowly getting closer to a sense of normalcy throughout our community.

Soon, the Detroit Institute of Arts will be welcoming back young art enthusiasts to the museum.

We're being joined for the 7 UpFront segment by DIA Director Salvador Salort-Pons to talk about it.

You can see the full interview in the video player above.

"I can't wait to hear the voices of the kids in the building. They transform the museum. They bring it alive," Salort-Pons says. "And we are very happy to say that field trips will be back in October and for residents of Oakland, Wayne, and Macomb counties these are free field trips, we pay for the buses and provide all the tools to make sure that this visit is helpful to whatever the teachers are teaching in their schools."
