Through July, the Michigan Design Center in Troy is inviting visitors to a virtual tour through four regions of notable craftsmanship in celebration of 350 years of the American tradition. The tour will introduce visitors to some of the world’s most notable items—and the people who create them, and a July 23 panel, "THE CRAFT: Discover the craftsmanship," will introduce visitors to the intricacies of craftsmanship. The panel will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
