Located in the heart of Birmingham, MI, the Robert Kidd Gallery showcases artworks from artists larger than life.
A New chapter
Robert Kidd Gallery was founded in 1976 By Robert Louis Kidd and Ray Frost Fleming, graduates of the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Owed to the curatorial vigor of Kidd and Fleming, the Robert Kidd Gallery achieved early notoriety through the caliber and consistency of its exhibitions, and a growing stable of prestigious artists with whom the gallery became affiliated. In the early 1980s, the gallery's exhibition and archive spaces were expanded by renowned architect Irving Tobocman, and fitted with custom gallery interiors by Kidd. The elegant modern designs conceived and constructed at the time of this collaboration remain in the two-level gallery on Townsend Street in downtown Birmingham, Michigan to this day.

On Being is an exploration of what happens when “traditional forms of painting and drawing are treated as an ever-important means of discovering balance through observation and patience” (Wojtkiewicz).
