American Craft Council recently featured Tiff Massey’s (Metalsmithing ’11) art practice and influence in the Detroit arts community. She is known for her jewelry and large-scale metal sculpture often utilizing scale to draw viewers into wearables in a new way. Massey was recently awarded Art Jewelry Forum’s Susan Beech Mid-Career Artist Grant (2019) and a United States Artists Fellowship (2021).

Tiff Massey’s work is currently on view at Cranbrook Art Museum in With Eyes Opened: Cranbrook Academy of Art Since 1932. Massey was the first Black woman to receive an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art Metalsmithing department.
