Dear Cranbrook Friends and Family,

As we enter the holiday season, I want to personally thank you for making Cranbrook such a special place to learn, explore, volunteer, and work. All of us at Cranbrook appreciate the support you have shown as we provide you and your family with extraordinary programs, exhibitions, and educational offerings in new and meaningful ways. You truly make Cranbrook a community. 

Throughout the past eight months, it has become increasingly clear how fortunate we are to be “One Cranbrook.”  From our dedicated people to the experiences we offer, all of us share a common mission and sense of commitment. Thanks to your continued friendship and support, Cranbrook nurtures the human spirit and transforms lives.  

As just one example of this, some Cranbrook students are now using our museums as their 2020-2021 classrooms as we work to adhere to our community’s COVID protocols. Aside from the benefits to the safety and health of our students, faculty, and staff, this moment offers a unique opportunity for students to be immersed in Cranbrook’s collections and creative spaces. The early feedback from students and faculty is that these new classroom settings are having a dramatic, positive impact. I am especially grateful for your support and enthusiasm as we embrace this creative “only at Cranbrook” approach, at least for the coming winter months. 

Please know also that Cranbrook is here for you, with prudent COVID precautions in place as we head into the holiday season. Your museums are ready to welcome you with enriching art and science experiences.  You can also stay connected from anywhere with digital tours and lectures each month. If you feel the need to disconnect, please take advantage of the fall and early winter seasons on our campus. Even a brief walk around the grounds can be refreshing, both physically and mentally. 

As always, please know that I am available if you would like to talk about anything at Cranbrook. I continue to welcome your feedback and suggestions.  

From all of us, thank you for being a part of the Cranbrook family. I wish you and yours a happy, safe, and healthy holiday season.
