Wittkopp, Gregory

is the Director of Cranbrook Art Museum and the Cranbrook Center for Collections and Research. Under his leadership, the art museum recently completed a major construction project that includes the renovation of its landmark 1942 Eliel Saarinen–designed building and the addition of a new state-of-the-art 30,000-square-foot collections education wing.

His research and publications during his twenty-eight-year tenure have focused on Cranbrook and its artists, most notably the Finnish-American architect Eliel Saarinen, and include the book ‘Saarinen House and Garden: A Total Work of Art’.

Recent curatorial projects and exhibition catalogues include ‘The Anatomy of a Home: Anders Ruhwald at Saarinen House’ and ‘No Object Is an Island: New Dia-
logues with the Cranbrook Collection’. Wittkopp holds an MA in art history from Wayne State University and a BS in architecture from the University of Michigan.
