In the summer of 2016, Cranbrook Art Museum hosted a local tour of the public artwork "In Search of the Truth (The Truth Booth)," as it visited a dozen neighborhoods in Metro Detroit and Flint, Michigan. The Truth Booth is a portable, inflatable video recording studio in the shape of a giant speech bubble created by the artist collaborative CAUSE COLLECTIVE.
At each location, participants had up to two minutes to record a statement starting with the words, “The Truth Is…”. The recorded results of this project, numbering in the thousands, will be used to create an ambitious 60-foot-wide video installation as part of the exhibition "The Truth Is I Hear You," opening at Cranbrook Art Museum in November of 2016. Knight Foundation is the presenting sponsor of the project, through the Knight Arts Challenge. For more information, visit cranbrookartmuseum.org.
