STUDIO 2021 is a one-of-a-kind celebration of creativity. While we can’t meet in person this year, we hope you will join us for a free, live, virtual experience that will take you behind the scenes of Cranbrook Academy of Art.

For nearly 90 years, the Academy has been home to the world’s leading artists, designers, and architects. STUDIO provides unprecedented access to our current student cohort of 100+ emerging artists. Register for the free event and get a peek into the individual practices of these artists through a robust digital platform with images, video, art for sale, and other surprises!

This year, the online event will be hosted by Academy alumni Jen Catron and Paul Outlaw (both Sculpture ’09). It will also include music from Tunde Olaniran and behind-the-scenes videos with Andrew Blauvelt (Design ’88), Director of Cranbrook Art Museum, and Susan Ewing, Director of Cranbrook Academy of Art.

Best of all, it’s totally FREE! Sign up to receive event reminders and login instructions.
