This happens only once a year! Cranbrook Academy of Art is opening the doors to its private studios for the second annual OPEN(STUDIOS) Art Sale + Community Day, allowing the public inside access to the workspaces of today’s emerging artists, architects and designers. Student artists and faculty from each of the Academy’s 10 departments will be on hand to discuss their work and show off their creative spaces. Select pieces of student art will be for sale, allowing the public to purchase work from this exclusive group of Academy artists as they launch their careers.
The campus will be buzzing with activity as this is also the first public day of the “2013 Graduate Degree Exhibition of Cranbrook Academy of Art” at Cranbrook Art Museum. The annual Degree Exhibition is the culmination of two years of studio work from 76 of today’s most promising artists, architects and designers. Museum admission is free with your OPEN(STUDIOS) ticket.
Families can also experience all that the Cranbrook Educational Community has to offer, with representatives from entities such as Cranbrook Art Museum, Cranbrook Institute of Science, Cranbrook House and Gardens, Cranbrook’s summer camps and many more on-site. Ticket price also includes access to hands-on art and science activities for the whole family. This year, we will also feature a mini food truck rally with selections from local vendors. The event will take place rain or shine.
Tickets are $12 online (by April 19) and $15 at the door. Children 12 and under are free. No strollers in the studios and children must be accompanied at all times. Admission to Cranbrook Art Museum, Cranbrook Institute of Science and a voucher for an upcoming tour of Cranbrook Gardens is included.
All parking for the event will be located in the Radar, Fishman & Grauer parking lot at 39533 Woodward Ave, Bloomfield Hills, MI, 48304.
The lot is located on the west side of Woodward, just south of Long Lake Road, next to the Radisson. Shuttle buses will transport guests directly to the heart of the event.
