Cranbrook Academy of Art offers a unique educational model centered on the questions and interests of artists as they strive to make sense of an ever-changing world. For nearly 90 years, the Academy has remained one of the nation’s most distinctive and celebrated graduate-only programs, and our students have helped shape the historical and contemporary landscape of art, architecture, and design. It is a place for students looking to graduate from their MFA or M.Arch program with a diverse series of options, from working in industry, launching an academic career, or opening their own studio practice. 

This year, to help answer questions and present all that Cranbrook has to offer, the Academy of Art is hosting a robust series of online discussions, hosted by Paul Sacaridiz, the new Maxine and Stuart Frankel Director of Cranbrook Academy of Art. These will feature Artists-in-Residence (faculty) from each of the Academy’s 11 departments. Please join us for these free online discussions, in addition to our in-person events taking place across the country. 

Please sign up for one (or all!)  through the links below.
