“one of America's oldest art museums”
On January 19, 1904, George and Ellen Booth purchased 175 acres in rural Bloomfield Hills and set into motion a vision that ultimately transformed their vacation property into one of the nation's foremost educational communities. At the heart of what is now Cranbrook Educational Community stands its Art Museum, one of the older art museums in the nation.
I visited to see the Warhol album cover art exhibit, which was very well curated & displayed, including a listening area where you could play vinyl copies of some of the albums he designed for. My visit was in January during slightly inclement weather so it was too cold to linger outside long, but the grounds around the museum and the drive through the surrounding campus were lovely covered in snow.
Cool little museum with beautiful surroundings. Apparently there's good sledding there in the wintertime if you're up for some art and snow sports!
