Michigan Singer/Songwriter Brett Mitchell is a Northern Michigan favorite. Brett, born (too late) and raised in Midland, picked up the sticks in his early teens & fell in love. Drumming professionally and touring by age 17 in a variety of bands, he began songwriting. To assist his writing, he taught himself guitar and by 2005 had recorded his debut album called {Stereo}, playing virtually all the instruments. In 2007, Brett released his 2nd project, Small House, which includes the award winning song, Born Too Late. His heartfelt & sincere songwriting and his appealing vocals are the draw and the live show fluctuates between soothing and poignant and rousing and memory invoking. Brett’s 3rd album, Falling Apart At The Seams released 1-1-11 to rave reviews and he's currently working on his 4th project.

Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University

Grand Rapids, MI  49503 Map

Sarah Laverty's thesis work will be on display Tuesday, May 2nd through Sunday, May 7th. Sarah Laverty is the recipient of the 2017 Excellence Award and will have her work shown in two locations. Two pieces will be shown in the Fed Galleries (Woodbridge N. Ferris Building,17 Pearl St. NW) and the majority of Sarah's work will be shown on the 3rd floor of the KCAD building (17 Fountain St. NW).

Sarah Laverty's work, The Story of a Kirkbride, is a documentary series about the former Traverse City State Hospital and how it has been resurrected into a beautiful and usable space once again. This series of images depicts the restoration process that was implemented to resurrect the former Traverse City State Hospital. In a traditional documentary style, these images are shown in black and white to demonstrate the beauty and care that was taken in order to construct and reconstruct these structures. The restoration project revolving around the former Traverse City State Hospital is one of the largest in the western hemisphere, and it's a huge inspiration for preservation on other historical structures in our culture. Please come visit this exhibition to see Sarah's work along with her classmates'. It's going to be a great show!
