ArtPrize Speaker Series

Cocktails: 6:00 p.m.
Presentation: 7:00 p.m.

The event kicks off Monday, Sept. 26 with Reed Kroloff, the Director of the Cranbrook Academy of Art and Art Museum, a principal at jones|kroloff, an international architecture firm, and a nationally known commentator in the world of architecture and urban design.

Kroloff is known for his outspoken approach to the problems of rebuilding cites and a fearless eye for design. Just like ArtPrize is transforming how Grand Rapids is transforming the urban experience, Kroloff is helping to change the urban landscape of cities from New York to New Orleans.

Here’s Kroloff speaking at TED2003.
