I think the school itself might be a bit pricey for students without a lot of money. My daughter attended CCS for a year, waiting to get into SCAD in Savannah. Even with room and board, SCAD was a better value and layout. CCS isn't in the best neighborhood, and the girls in her room (6 in a room) were... More

I have now gone to two years of the Art Exhibit and I look forward to it every year. I love all the different styles and layers and textures to all of the art pieces and what they represent. Not sure how I came across this but so glad I did!

Sitting behind The Detroit Institute of Arts on the College for Creative Studies campus is the lovely Josephine Ford Sculpture Garden, named for the only grand daughter of Henry Ford. Here you'll find around a dozen sculptures from a number of different artists, arranged throughout the gardens. My favorite pieces were by Etienne Martin, Alexander Calder, Raymond Duchamp-Villon and Beverly... More

I enjoyed my visit to the campus for a Kresge Information session. The conference, Lecture spaces was comfortable and nice looking. The audio system was quite good and I was impressed by the mini mics, shaped like small tubes, they had at the table so the ladies could be heard while seated.

I love the artistic atmosphere at this college, but feel the need for them to develop a program more accommodating for their working, part-time students.

I don't know if this is a place to visit unless you've organized something but CCS has nailed Detroit 2.0. Its all about finding abandoned buildings and adapting them for next use - building new applied arts and industry in previously derelict areas. Great respect for them in the past and what they are doing in the future.
