Cranbrook Art Museum is located at 39221 Woodward Avenue, on the campus of Cranbrook Educational Community in Bloomfield Hills. It is an integral part of Cranbrook Academy of Art, a community of Artists-in-Residence and graduate-level students of art, design, and architecture. Cranbrook Art Museum was established in 1930 and opened in its current building in 1942. The building is considered to be Eliel Saarinen’s final masterwork at Cranbrook.
Today, the Art Museum presents original exhibitions and educational programming on modern and contemporary architecture, art, crafts, and design, as well as traveling exhibitions, films, workshops, travel tours, and lectures by renowned artists, designers, artists, and critics throughout the year. In 2011, the Art Museum completed a three-year $22 million construction project that included both the restoration of the Saarinen-designed building and a state-of-the-art Collections Wing addition. Cranbrook Archives and the offices of the Cranbrook Center for Collections and Research also are located within the Art Museum.
