Cranbrook Art Museum Renovation and Addition Puts Entire Collection on View

The Cranbrook Art Museum, designed in 1942 by Eliel Saarinen, has completed a $22 million, two-year renovation and addition project that solves two problems the museum struggled with: inadequate climate control for its collection and insufficient storage space. Now, the Museum enjoys a sophisticated conservation environment and a new 3-story Collections wing that pushes the envelope of open storage with 6,000 pieces of accessible art, architecture and design.
