The “Craft in the Digital Age” exhibition creates a dialogue between technologically-produced and inspired design and the traditional Ford House collection. This exhibit features the work of contemporary Detroit-area artists and designers staged throughout the rooms in the main residence of Ford House, Edsel and Eleanor Ford’s historic lakeside home in Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich.

Selected works explore the meaning and expression of craft in the 21st century through thoughtful and playful juxtapositions with the museum’s collection of the Fords’ art and antiques and the interior architectural features of the Albert Kahn-designed 1929 home.

The curated show features more than 70 works from 35 local artists and designers, with works including robot-made drawings, 3D-printed furniture, and a digital jacquard loom weaving. On view for the month of September, this innovative exhibition is a collaboration among Lawrence Technological University’s College of Architecture and Design, Ford House, and Design Core Detroit.

The exhibition is open during Ford House tour hours, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Tuesdays-Sundays. Admission to the exhibition is included with a self-guided tour ticket. For admission and to reserve tickets, visit A selection of the works will be offered for sale.
