"'A Life Without Beauty Is Only Half Lived':

Cranbrook and the Arts and Crafts Movement"

Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.

 


On Saturday, April 1, at 5:30 p.m. in conjunction with the museum’s upcoming Farms Afield: Michigan Meetup, we’ll welcome Greg Wittkopp, Director of Cranbrook Center for Collections and Research, as he presents the lecture, “‘A Life Without Beauty Is Only Half Lived’: Cranbrook and the Arts and Crafts Movement.” Wittkopp, who will host the Stickley Museum’s group visit to Cranbrook in July, will explore the history of the Arts and Crafts movement in Michigan and the movement’s connections to the Cranbrook Educational Community. Established in the early 20th century by George Booth, a founder of the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts, Cranbrook is today one of the world’s leading centers of education, science and art.

 

About the Speaker: For more than three decades, Greg Wittkopp has been shaping and stewarding Cranbrook’s collections, first as a curator, then as the Director of Cranbrook Art Museum, and now as the Founding Director of the Cranbrook Center for Collections and Research. Major projects at the Museum include the restoration of Saarinen House and its transformation into a museum and the creation of the state-of-the-art Collections Wing. Wittkopp’s research and publications have focused on Cranbrook and its artists and include the award-winning book Saarinen House and Garden: A Total Work of Art. He holds an MA in Art History from Wayne State University and a BS in Architecture from the University of Michigan.
