Advancing the Creative Spirit

Keeping the Promise

The College for Creative Studies completed a $145 million campus expansion project to strengthen art and design education and accelerate Detroit’s transition to an innovation-based economy. The College took a bold step to renovate the historic General Motors Argonaut building into the A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education. The College’s creation of the Taubman Center and renovation of the Walter & Josephine Ford Campus create some of the finest art and design classroom and studio facilities in the country.

CCS’ expansion project created unparalleled opportunities to renew the City of Detroit:

  • Provide creative talent to the region
  • Help to establish Detroit as a national center for creativity
  • Provide pathways for minority youth to art and design education and careers in art and design

CCS partnered with leading community organizations to create the Henry Ford Academy: School for Creative Studies, an innovative charter middle and high school housed in the Taubman Center.
