Muskegon Friends of Art will present a program entitled, Cranbrook: Architecture as Art, as part of their yearlong, Architecture as Art: Our Past and Future series. The free webinar takes place Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. Cranbrook’s curator of historic collections and architecture historian Kevin Adkisson will give a lively and gorgeously illustrated talk on the esteemed center of art, science and education.
Adkisson’s weekly “Live at Five” Facebook tours of Cranbrook were recently voted Best Virtual Museum Experience in the metro Detroit area. One viewer said, “There’s no one like Kevin Adkisson.” He brings such personality, fierce intelligence and humor to the deep history of our local art, architecture and human stories.” Kevin’s talk involves close up looks at Cranbrook’s buildings ranging from arts and crafts, art deco, and modern in style.
The Cranbrook House, an English Arts and Craft style mansion, owned by newspaper magnate George Booth and designed by noted architect Albert Kahn, will be featured. Booth owned the Muskegon Chronicle, and asked Kahn to design the downtown Muskegon Chronicle building as well.
Registration for this webinar can be found on eventbrite.
