“I said at the beginning… look everything’s on the table,” Kevyn Orr said of the possibility of some of the museum’s assets being sold to appease creditors.

Orr said that Christie's auction house will finish an appraisal of “tier one” art by the end of this month, and another of “tier two” pieces by the end of November.

“I have a fiduciary obligation to account for all the assets of the city of Detroit,” he said. “The foremost amongst them might very well be the DIA.”
