Cranbrook Art Museum
Cranbrook Art Museum opened in its current Eliel Saarinen-designed building in 1942. Today, it presents original exhibitions and educational programming on modern and contemporary architecture, art, crafts, and design. In 2011, the Museum underwent a $22 million restoration and expansion, creating a state-of-the-art Collections Wing that makes its entire 6,000+ collection visible—and accessible—to students, scholars, and visitors.
Cranbrook Art Museum is an educational institution that provides direct experience with modern and contemporary art, architecture and design, and promotes an understanding of their relevance and contribution to society. As a partner of Cranbrook Academy of Art, Cranbrook Art Museum is a window to the Academy and the Academy’s window to the world.
