[BKARTS] Detroit Collections



In cordial reply to Kevin Thomas's query, there are four distinguished (and
large) venues in Detroit & environs which he should investigate:

(i) Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, suburban Detroit (visit
their site); they'd surely be current on artist book collections; (ii)
Detroit Institute of Arts ("DIA"), Woodward Avenue, Wayne State University
area, downtown, an impressive landmark bldg (don't miss the famous Diego
Rivera murals); (iii) Detroit Public Library, main branch, downtown, also a
landmark & an impressive collection; and (iv) the Kresge Library of Wayne
State University. All of these venues are likely to yield results.

In the 1960's, when I studied & taught at Wayne State and also at The
University of Detroit, I had many inspiring professors & colleagues, not
least Sir Tyrone Guthrie and also graphics artist/printmaker/illustrator,
Robert Broner, now back in NYC. Broner (see web matches) would be another
source, as he knew the Detroit arts scene as a practitioner -- a brother of
the Craft.

Best wishes & safe travels to Kevin Thomas,
