Letter from the Director

Welcome to the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the most historically significant accredited independent school of art and design in the nation. This is an exceptional community of thinkers, makers, and creative leaders all devoted to a vigorous exchange of ideas, and to your success. As a metalsmith myself, I often find myself using the circle in my creative practice. Throughout my life, I have often felt that I live this circle. My studio work and life mirrors my administrative and academic style. I believe the circle grows through creative energy, mutual collegial respect, and diverse global friendships, all of which I hope you find at the Academy. We invite you to visit, or reach out to learn more about us. Welcome.
