Crandemonium 2014

Thank you to everyone who attended Crandemonium: A Benefit for Cranbrook Art Museum. You were part of a record crowd this year!

Your generous support of the event benefits Cranbrook Art Museum’s education programs, which work to bring Cranbrook’s spirit of innovation and creativity to young artists in our region.

We would especially like to thank all of our sponsors, Academy alumni who contributed work and performances, Honorary Chair Nick Cave (Fiber '89) and most of all, our Event Chairs: Maureen D'Avanzo, Pamela Gerber, and April Wagner.
