Detroit and Cranbrook: Modernism and Historicism
Detroit and Cranbrook: Modernism and Historicism Sojourn
July 26–30, 2023
With an optional extension to the Toledo Museum of Art
July 30, 2023
Throughout the first half the 20th-century, the Motor City fostered competing historicist and modernist impulses. From grand Tudor Revival country houses to cutting edge building designs, important architectural projects sprang forth. This breadth of taste is also reflected in the collections of local museums and historic sites, which tell the story of the patronage that rendered Detroit one of the most important artistic centers of the era. From Bloomfield Hills to Grosse Pointe, and from the Detroit Institute of Arts to the Henry Ford Museum, join us for four days of visits to sites illustrating the Detroit area’s divergent interests in historicism and avant-gardism and the local passion for collecting across the cultural spectrum.
