Cranbrook Academy of Art


Welcome to Cranbrook Academy of Art and Art Museum. I’d like to be the first to say hello and welcome you to the website, which serves as a portal to the historic and beautiful 319-acre Cranbrook campus. As the first graduate of the Academy to be named Director, I’m both humbled and honored to be leading this fabled institution into the twenty-first century. For more than 75 years, Cranbrook has been one of the nation’s leading graduate schools of art, architecture, and design. It has been home to some of the world’s most renowned designers and artists. Eero Saarinen, Charles Eames, Daniel Libeskind, Michael and Katherine McCoy, and Jun Kaneko have all taught here, to name only a few. Our students have included Florence Knoll, Harry Bertoia, Jack Lenor Larsen, Nick Cave, Tony Matelli, Niels Diffrient, Lorraine Wild, Andrew Blauvelt, and Hani Rashid. It’s arguable that the work emanating from Cranbrook in the twentieth century changed the way people live, and the way they understand art and design.
