Lectures Held in Cranbrook Art Museum’s deSalle Auditorium

All lectures are held in Cranbrook Art Museum’s deSalle Auditorium and are free to ArtMembers and students with identification, and included with Museum admission for the general public. Cranbrook Art Museum is located at 39221 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

The Public Lecture series at Cranbrook Academy of Art is a critical and idiosyncratic look into the conversations and inquiry that drives the 10 departments in Art, Architecture and Design. Our open structure allows for a responsive approach to curating our lecture series so that the conversations on campus are timely and engage urgent issues in our fields. Our open pedagogy means between 30-50 visiting artists, designers, curators and thinkers are bringing their research to our studios and impacting the practices of this community. This spring we are thrilled to have John Corso Esquivel join us as our Critical Studies and Humanities fellow, John will give two public lectures throughout the spring.

Stay Tuned!
