Our venue was the prestigious Art Directors Club. We selected it not knowing that several alumni are members. What a pleasant surprise when we found out! We already have two other Kendall reunions that take place during other national events: the gathering that takes place in June during NeoCon in Chicago, which is attended by graphic designers, photographers, interior designers, furniture designers, and industrial designers. The other takes place during the International High Point Market in October, and attracts alumni whose professions are affiliated with the furniture industry. Because our out-of-Grand Rapids reunions have been slanted toward the design industries, we wanted to offer our fine art graduates an opportunity and a cool place where they could gather.
