Call for applications

Cranbrook Academy of Art

No undergraduates; no classes; no A’s, B’s, C’s or D’s; no part-time faculty; no ugly buildings. Sound good? It gets better.

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 including 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. Dozens of internationally acclaimed artists, critics, curators and gallerists visit each semester to supplement the individualized instruction, critiques, and mentoring by the Artists-in-Residence and Critical Studies Fellow. There simply is no other school—no other place—like this.

If you have an undergraduate degree and are ready for a uniquely stimulating environment, we invite you to apply:
