Space is the Place @ Cranbrook

There's a great show up at cranbrook right now - Space is the Place! I don't want to say too much to give it away...this is a show you need to experience. I think if I have to see a group show then it is all up to the curation of the show to bring it together and make it coherant and interesting - which this show did and included all mediums to express space exploration. This show left me feeling like I had gone back during the space race time!

How is it that you always seem to miss the exhibitions that run concurrently at the FORUM gallery at Cranbrook (the student-run artist space)?? On view now is a National Juried Exhibition curated by Susanne Hilberry and Paul Kotula.

ann gets around alot and we really appreciate her efforts, but she is not a paid reporter for the newspapers

oh i forgot, THERE ARE NO PAID FULL TIME ARTS REPORTERS IN THIS AREA!

she does great for someone who is a working artist and also holds down a job. the fact that she cares enough to take time to do this blog is significant.

Anon, why dont YOU start a blog and cover some of these shows you are referring to? Help Ann out. Be a new voice. Be a part of the solution

Another anon . . . not the one above . . .

There are many of us that cannot make it around town and appreciate Ann's coverage of the openings and shows.

Thank you, Ann.
