Gifts of Art presents Panoramic Delights of Leelanau: Color Photography

Ken Scott

Ken Scott

Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
Gifts of Art
Time:
8:00 am - 8:00 pm
Location:
University Hospitals
Room:
Gifts of Art Gallery — Main Corridor, Floor 2.

Having raised his two children near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Ken Scott has found much inspiration there. A self-taught photographer, he started out with a 35mm camera, heavy tripod, either a 24 or 105 mm lens, and a slow slide film (ASA 50). He is now climbing the digital ladder! Scott’s photography is the result of 20+ years of "lots of patience, recognizing the right place at the right time, but not necessarily for the intended image…" He shoots photographs around Leelanau County, Michigan and stitches multiple images together to create vistas beyond what a single image can show.

Three Michigan Architects: Part 2—Robert Metcalf

Robert Metcalf
Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA)
Time:
11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location:
Museum of Art
Room:
N/A

Robert Metcalf’s domestic and commercial buildings represent some of the most important and recognizable modern architecture in Michigan. Born in 1923, Metcalf is a native of Ohio. He began his education at the University of Michigan in 1941 but his studies were halted during World War II. After serving in Europe, Metcalf returned to Ann Arbor and finished his degree in 1950. Upon graduation, he worked as an apprentice to George B. Brigham and began teaching Architecture at the University of Michigan. Metcalf began his own practice in 1953 and completed over 120 projects Ann Arbor and the Detroit Metro area. This exhibition presents 13 domestic projects that span his six-decade-long career from 1953-2008, highlighting his straightforward design aesthetic, featuring many of his iconic flat-roofed houses. Each project selected exemplifies Metcalf’s mid-century modern architectural vocabulary that results in functional, minimalist spaces for living.

This exhibition presents 13 domestic projects that span his six-decade-long career from 1953-2008, highlighting his straightforward design aesthetic, featuring many of his iconic flat-roofed houses. Each project selected exemplifies Metcalf’s mid-century modern architectural vocabulary that results in functional, minimalist spaces for living.

Three Michigan Architects: Part 2–Metcalf is the second in a series of three consecutive exhibitions, with subsequent presentation of domestic work by George Brigham (July 19–October 12, 2014). Part 1 of the series presented the work of David Osler (December 21, 2013–March 30, 2013). The series will culminate in Fall 2014 with a symposium, as well as the publication of Three Michigan Architects: Osler, Metcalf, and Brigham—both of which will explore the importance of this circle of Ann Arbor-based architects, situating their regional body of domestic work into the larger context of modern architecture in the U.S. that developed on the East Coast and West Coast from the 1930s–1980s.

Research Through Making

Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning
Time:
3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
Liberty Gallery, 305 W. Liberty St

Historically, research and creative practice have been constructed as "opposites." This is not an unusual struggle in architecture schools, particularly in the context of a research university. This perceived tension between design and research is indicative of age-old anxieties within the architecture field to understand its nature as an "applied art." Design can be a purely creative activity not unlike creative practices in music and art. In other cases, design can be a purely problem solving activity, not unlike research in engineering and industrial production.

In its fifth year, University of Michigan Taubman College's Research Through Making (RTM) Program provides seed funding for faculty research, worked on by faculty, students and interdisciplinary experts. The exhibition presents tangible results of their collaborative work. This year's projects:

"City of Nights: Detroit Illuminated": Karl Daubmann, Osman Kahn (UM Art and Design) and Catie Newell "PneuSystems": Kathy Velikov, Geoffrey Thun, and Santinder Singh Baveja (UM College of Engineering) "Displace": Wes McGee, Catie Newell, and Brandon Weiner (UM library) "Carbon Fiber Architecture": Glenn Wilcox and Anca Trandafirescu "Knit Architectures": Sean Ahlquist, Wes McGee, Anthony Waas (UM Engineering), and Georg Essl (UM Engineering)
