Craft, 20th Century and Contemporary

20th century and contemporary craft with special emphasis on ceramics, fiber and wood.

The exhibition, Crafting a Continuum: Rethinking Contemporary Craft, was drawn from the Museum's collection and traveled nationally to five museums across the country from 2103-2015. The result of a two year survey of our collection and of the state of contemporary craft funded by the Windgate Charitable Foundation, the exhibition and catalog featured 63 works from the 1958 to today, and more than 10 new acquisitions and commissions. The Windgate Contemporary Craft Initiative, 2018-2020, expanded the Museum’s work with residencies, visiting artists and scholars, exhibitions, collections care and student awards.
