Sculptor, Kevin Barrett prepares Naj for a move from Armstrong – De Graaf Galleries to Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan.  This project brought it all together from several dimensions. 

Kris Courtney, a long time client of the gallery, knew Kevin Barrett and loved his work.  When the new art piece arrived, Kris not only fell in love with the sculpture, but knew immediately what she wanted to do. 

Kevin Barrett, was surrounded by abstract sculpture his entire life .  Born into a family of artist in Ann Arbor, Michigan,.  He learned for his father, Bill Barrett.  He was an apprentice with his father in New York.  Kevin is widely collected.  Several one-man shows and exhibitions have occurred since 1980.

Kris Courtney, from Okemos, Michigan bought and donated the sculpture Naj, to Interlochen Center for the Arts.  It is prominently   installed in front the Center for the Visual Arts on the Interlochen Campus.  The Armstrong – De Graaf Gallery was also a contributor to this wonderful and memorable project.  Beth Stoner, Director of Development at Interlochen and many others were on the project team
