Cranbrook Art Museum presents and collects the art, architecture, craft, and design of the twentieth- and twenty-first centuries with a special focus on the achievements of artists from Cranbrook Academy of Art and Detroit.
We connect today’s diverse and adventuresome artists and audiences with important developments in the arts. We center artists and artworks to drive conversations that inspire us as individuals, cultures, and communities.
We do this work at the heart of a landmark campus of exceptional design that serves as a destination for visitors from down the street and around the world.
We foster inclusivity, creativity, and community through the power of contemporary art and design.
Cranbrook Art Museum is part of Cranbrook Educational Community, one of the world’s leading centers of education, science, and art. Comprising a graduate Academy of Art, modern and contemporary Art Museum, Center for Collections and Research, House and Gardens, Institute of Science, and Pre-K through 12 independent college preparatory Schools, Cranbrook welcomes thousands of visitors and students to its campus each year.
Founded by Detroit philanthropists George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth in 1904, Cranbrook’s 319-acre campus features the work of world-renowned architects such as Eliel Saarinen, Albert Kahn, Steven Holl, Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, Rafael Moneo, Peter Rose, and sculptors Carl Milles, Marshall Fredericks and others. Critics have called Cranbrook “the most enchanted and enchanting setting in America” and in 1989, it was designated a National Historic Landmark.
