With Eyes Opened: Cranbrook Academy of Art Since 1932 (2021) was a five-year research initiative to explicate a more diverse history of the storied art school—often referred to as an American Bauhaus—that embraced a radical approach to pedagogy in the early twentieth century. Culminating in a  624-page publication that greatly expands and diversifies the canon of the school to include more women, artists of color, and those who identify as LGBTQIA+. The museum presentation included nine thematic galleries that juxtaposed approximately 275 works from different periods. Curated with Katherine  Goffnett and Ian Gabriel Wilson.
