What happens when 80 emerging architects, artists, and designers get together and throw themselves a party? Find out at the “2011 Graduate Degree Exhibition,” one of the largest and most exciting exhibitions of art and design in the country, opening April 17 at Cranbrook Art Museum. The annual Degree Show of Cranbrook Academy of Art is the culmination of two years of studio work at the nation’s top-ranked independent graduate school of architecture, art and design. This is the same show that launched the careers of Florence Knoll, Harry Bertoia, Massamichi Udagawa, Anne Wilson, Hani Rashid, Nick Cave, Tony Matelli,  Ed Fella, Lorraine Wild, Martin Venezky, Beth Katleman, Sonya Clark and many more. The exhibition takes place in over 15,000 square feet of galleries at Cranbrook’s historic Eliel Saarinen designed Art Museum. The Museum has recently undergone a 21 million USD renovation and expansion that is creating one of the most significant exhibition and research facilities in the United States.

Cranbrook Academy of Art

Cranbrook Academy of Art is the country’s only top-ranked, independent graduate school in architecture, design and fine art. Just 75 students are admitted each year to this two-year residential program that is led by ten celebrated artists working on a landmark campus that features: private studios for all, state-of-the art workshops and shared facilities including a public Art Museum, and Institute of Science.  The focus 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 enriched by dozens of internationally-acclaimed visiting artists, critics, curators and gallerists, as well as lectures, individualized instruction, critiques, and mentoring by our ten artists-in-residence and Critical Studie Fellow.  Only talented applicants, who are motivated, independent, and interested in contextualizing their traditional and non-traditional creative practices within a stimulating environment, and also hold an undergraduate degree, are invited to apply.
The “2011 Graduate Degree Exhibition,” at Cranbrook Art Museum is sponsored by the MASCO Corporation Foundation. Additional support is provided by Mercedes-Benz Financial Services.
