Green from the Get Go:
Contemporary International Basketmakers
Opens at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House
in Michigan January 12th

Kay Sekimachi

Green from the Get Go: International Contemporary Basketmakers, curated by browngrotta arts and Jane Milosch, former curator of the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum, travels to the Visitor Center Gallery of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe, Michigan this month. The exhibition, which features from more than 50 works by artists who take inspiration from nature and the history of basketry, will be open from January 12th to March 9, 2013. On January 12th, Tom Grotta of browngrotta arts will do a walkthrough from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. In hosting Green from the Get Go, the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House honors the Fords' appreciation of boundary-stretching artistic inspiration, while drawing attention to the ever-more important issues of sustainability and the need for increased use of renewable resources. The museum's intent in sharing these artistic creations is to both heighten awareness of and draw attention to an unlimited resource for inspiration – nature. In addition to viewing the exhibition, when you visit, you can take a tour of the House and surrounding buildings. The Edsel & Eleanor Ford House is at 110 Lake Shore Road, Grosse Pointe, Michigan, 48236. The hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. For more information call: 313.884.4222 or visit:
