Save the Date: Genesis: The Origins of an Idea

An artist’s creative process is often a personal journey that is hidden from the public until the finished product can be produced. The origins of their ideas are unknown to all but the artists themselves and we are left to wonder what sparked such ingenuity.

Being known for ingenuity in its own right, Kettering University’s Humanities Art Center asked sculptor Michael Dunbar for access to the posters, 3-D sketches and miniature bronze sculptures which show the genesis of his artistic vision for the Machinist Series, which culminated in the monumental sculpture located in front of Kettering University.

July 20 – September 30, 2015 | Humanities Art Center

Artist Reception

Monday, July 20, 2015 | 12 noon – 2 p.m.
4th Floor, Academic Building

The reception will include remarks from Dr. McMahan and artist Michael Dunbar. Lunch will be served for our guests. Kettering students attending will have the opportunity to win a gift card from the Lunch Studio in downtown Flint.


Kettering Commencement a Family Affair

Kettering Commencement a family affair for alumni children watching mom graduate

Joyce Casci (second from right) first graduated from Kettering University--then GMI--in 1983. Three of her four children followed suit. Pictured is John Casci (center) on his graduation day in 2014 with sisters Mary Casci (right) and Beth Bier (left) who also attended Kettering and his father Arthur Casci. 

From the time Joyce Casci first walked across the stage when the school was General Motors Institute in 1983 to when she walked across the stage on Saturday with her master of science degree in manufacturing operations, Kettering has been very familiar to Casci. Read more.
