One uses a wedding dress to explore like a thread to bind the use of different media, another bends wood into an irresistible structure and another uses intricate patterns to explore both personal and political history.

2017 Graduate Degree Show
Cranbrook Art Museum in the News

Fundamentally, metro Detroit's two most prominent art schools — the College for Creative Studies and the Cranbrook Academy of Art — couldn't be more different. While both are located off of Woodward Avenue, they're worlds apart: CCS in the city's core, and Cranbook in leafy, suburban Bloomfield Hills.

Of course, an environment inevitably informs an artist's work, and it's easy to see this with Cranbrook's annual graduate student exhibition. While CCS's student work may have more of an emphasis on technical virtuosity, Cranbrook's student art tends to be — much like its wooded campus — sprawling, often featuring elaborate, large-scale installation work.

This year's show features the work of the 64 graduates from Cranbrook's two-year Master's program. The school has 10 departments,with fewer than a dozen students in each. Cranbrook's is the only completely studio-based program in the country — there are no classes. Students live and work on campus, working directly with their respective department's artist-in-residence.
