Cranbrook Art Museum and Anders Ruhwald, Cranbrook Academy of Art Artist-in-Residence, were each awarded separate grants yesterday from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Detroit Knight Arts Challenge.
Cranbrook Art Museum was awarded a $60,000 matching grant to create a Detroit tour of the public art installation In Search of the Truth (The Truth Booth). The ambitious public program will also result in a new presentation at the Museum in the fall of 2016.
Anders Ruhwald, Cranbrook Academy of Art Artist-in-Residence and Head of the Ceramics Department, was awarded a $25,000 matching grant for his project Unit 1: 3583 Dubois.
