Cranbrook Art Museum Part 1

My bud, Carol, and I went to the Cranbrook Art Museum to see the Alexander Girard exhibit.  Mr. Girard was one of the most influential designers of the twentieth century.  You can go to the link above and read more about Mr. Girard.  I'll just show some of the work that I enjoyed but too many pictures so there will be a part 1 and part 2!  

I loved this piece - my favorite.  It appeared to be wrapped on canvas.

This fabric was also printed in green.  

Nips and all!

These were beautiful sheer fabrics.  Love the pattern.

More designs, again printed on fabric

This was a paper cutting which was wonderful!!

He accumulated a lot of folk art and also created folk artwork

These were painted on wood

Of course, there's always food involved, right!  We started off with Opa Flaming Saganaki!!!  Delicious!!!

I ordered their Mediterranean Salad and it was fantastic!  I only ate 1/4 of it and Bob and I each had salad for dinner and I still have a bowl of salad left for another meal!!!  Their Asian Dressing was the best!

Carol had a Chicken Challah Club sandwich.  She only ate half and said it was very good too!

No, we didn't have dessert...unless you count a glass of wine!  More pictures tomorrow...but no more food pictures!
