Midland, MI -- Creative 360’s next Yes We Can! Tuesday Tribute features Ralph Rye (94), designer and builder of creative art furniture. Enjoy lively conversation, tea and treats at Creative 360.

Rye spent most of his career in Grand Rapids where he also taught at the Kendall College of Art and Design. He was licensed to build for the finest furniture companies in America, and his own custom furniture was in high demand by corporations and residential clients. His work has been published in national art and design publications, and exhibited in galleries across Michigan and Chicago. His Kite Tables and Rye chair were on exhibit during the Yes We Can! exhibition this year. The chair continues to be in demand and commands prices in the thousands.
