Cranbrook Art Associates inspires and connects the next generation of art patrons with each other, fresh perspectives, the world around them, and of course, art.
WHO WE ARE
We are a diverse group of art enthusiasts and creative professionals who share a commitment to the arts and Detroit’s cultural community. Geared towards early and mid-career professionals and the next generation of community leaders, this auxiliary committee leverages Cranbrook Art Museum’s legacy as a leader in art, architecture, craft, and design, in order to provide members unparalleled access to arts and culture in Metro Detroit. Members enjoy a wide array of exclusive professional and social networking experiences and opportunities with curators, artists, and art collectors.
OUR COMMUNITY IMPACT
Art Associates are committed to fostering awareness of Cranbrook Art Museum and its programs. Members support Cranbrook Art Museum through enriching programs, social leadership, and fundraising activities, including STUDIO(junior). Funds raised through Cranbrook Art Associates offsets the cost of Cranbrook Art Museum’s Educational Programs, which promote an appreciation for art in young learners through collections and exhibition tours, hand-on-art experiences, and object-based learning. Through outreach and programs held within our galleries and Art Lab, Cranbrook Art Museum provides accessible and free educational art programming to more than 4,000 underserved students in Metro Detroit as well as another 4,000+ individuals through additional family and youth programs.
