During the midcentury period, Michigan attracted visionary architects, designers, and theorists, including Alexander Girard. While much has been written about Girard's vibrantly colored and patterned textiles for Herman Miller, the story of his Detroit period (1937­-53) - encompassing interior and industrial design, exhibition curation, and residential architecture - has not been told. Alexander Girard, Architect is the first comprehensive study of Girard's exceptional architectural projects.

This event is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP!
