The exhibition The 2015 graduate degree exhibition of Cranbrook Academy of Art just opened to the public, and showcases the work of architects, artists and designers who are shaping the future of art and design.

About Cranbrook Academy of Art Cranbrook Academy of Art is the country's top ranked, graduate-only program in architecture, design and fine art. Each year, just 75 students are invited to study and live on our landmark Saarinen-designed campus, which features private studios, state-of-the art workshops, a renowned art museum, and 300 acres of forests, lakes, and streams, all a short drive from the red-hot art, design, and music scene of Detroit. The focus at Cranbrook is on studio practice in one of ten disciplines: Architecture, 2D and 3D Design, Ceramics, Fiber, Metalsmithing, Painting, Photography, Print Media, and Sculpture. The program is anchored by celebrated artists- and designers-in-residence, one for each discipline, all of whom live and practice on campus alongside our students.
