Christy McDonald talks with CEO of the Detroit Regional Chamber Sandy Baruah about the importance of Michigan’s leaders coming back together at the Mackinac Policy Conference after two years, the safety measures that have been put into place, and what the focus of the conference will be.
Christy McDonald and One Detroit contributors Stephen Henderson and Nolan Finley talk about their excitement and concerns about gathering with Michigan leaders at the Mackinac Policy conference, when and if the resurgence of Detroit will resume post covid, and what government officials around the state will do with an influx of once in a generation federal money.
An important art exhibition is closing soon – the last chance to see it this coming weekend – it’s review from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills – a school whose students has made a major impact worldwide over the past ninety years.
The show at Cranbrook is called “With Eyes Opened” – where you can see how art and design has converged to create some of the most iconic mid-century forms we cherish today.
While the Cranbrook story remains a key part of America’s history of design, artists training there keep emerging, recognized nationally – perhaps part of a new Cranbrook legacy – and some are working right here in Detroit.
