The Cranbrook Educational Community is an education, research, and public museum complex located in Bloomfield Hills. Founded by Detroit philanthropists George and Ellen Booth in 1904, Cranbrook’s 319-acre campus features the work of world-renowned architects and was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1989. With its own Academy of Art graduate program, students can receive an intense, studio-based experience from artists-in-residence and have the opportunity to be featured in Cranbrook’s Art Museum, which offers modern and contemporary art, craft and design, and architecture pieces. Cranbrook also provides a Center for Collections and Research that allows the community to develop new educational and research opportunities. The House and Gardens, designed by notable Detroit architect Albert Kahn in 1908, features handcrafted furniture, tapestries, and works of decorative art created by artisans and craftsmen. Cranbrook also has an Institute of Science museum with more than 200,000 objects and artifacts, as well as public programs, exhibits, events, and lectures throughout the year. Nationally recognized for academic excellence, Cranbrook offers a K-12 school program.
