We are proud to announce the re-introduction of The Cranbrook Chair Show. This exhibition features original chairs, designed and built by current MFA and MArch candidates at Cranbrook Academy of Art, and also highlights the history of the exhibition at the Academy. The chairs are on display in a storefront in downtown Detroit.

Cranbrook Academy of Art has a long history of producing artists, designers and architects that influence contemporary culture. To highlight their contributions, there will also be a digital display featuring past and present chair designs by Academy alumni.

The exhibition is organized, designed and built by current Cranbrook Academy of Art Students Joe Parr (3D Design ’19), Joseph Shedd (3D Design ’19), and Gerald Flynt (2D Design ’19). There will also be a panel discussion held in conjunction with the exhibition on May 2 – details to follow.
