With the opening of the summer exhibition season at the Cranbrook Art Museum, the campus is filled with opportunities to learn about art, design, and history.  This also marks the first of a regular series of exhibitions that explore the unplumbed depths of Cranbrook’s archival holdings.  From the Archives: Teaching and Exhibiting Painting at Cranbrook, 1930-1970 highlights the efforts of Cranbrook teachers and curators and explores the work they did promoting painting at Cranbrook at the mid-century mark.  Curated by Head Archivist Leslie S. Edwards, the show uncovers untold accounts about the moments and figures that populate Cranbrook’s storied painting history.   From the Archives: Teaching and Exhibiting Painting at Cranbrook, 1930-1970 will be on view in the Cranbrook Art Museum from June 14 to September 29, 2013, so be sure to check it out!

[Ed. note: if you missed the Archives exhibition in person, don’t worry – it lives forever on the internet! Check out the Archives online exhibition, From the Archives: Teaching and Exhibiting Painting at Cranbrook, 1930-1970.]
