Cranbrook Academy of Art is the country’s top ranked, graduate-only program in architecture, design and fine art. Each year, just 75 students are invited to study and live on the landmark Saarinen-designed campus in Bloomfield Hills, which features: private studios, state-of-the art workshops, the renowned Cranbrook Art Museum and 300 acres of forests, lakes and streams, all a short drive from the city of Detroit. The focus at Cranbrook is on studio practice in one of ten disciplines including Architecture, 2D and 3D Design, Ceramics, Fiber, Metalsmithing, Painting, Photography, Print Media, and Sculpture. The program is anchored by celebrated Artists- and Designers-in-Residence, one for each discipline, all of whom live and practice on campus alongside the graduate students. The community-at-large is invited to participate in public events at the Academy which annually include exhibitions, symposium, and lectures by dozens of internationally acclaimed artists, critics, scholars, art museum directors, curators and gallerists who are invited to campus each semester to supplement the individualized instruction, critiques, and mentoring by the Artists-in-Residence.
