Contemporary Crafts from the Collection
March 19, 2005 - August 20, 2006

With over thirty objects from the Museum's esteemed crafts collection, this exhibition highlights postwar and contemporary crafts from the United States and Japan.

The American works include furniture, ceramics, glass, silver, beadwork, textiles, and a banjo from an impressive selection of diverse and talented artists, including Robert Arneson, Howard Ben Tre, Wendell Castle, Judy Kensley McKie, Olaf Skoogfors, Peter Voulkos, Betty Woodman, and Robert Whitley.

The Japanese works focus on contemporary Japanese potters, who draw their inspiration from the forms, glazes, decoration, and techniques of Japan's ten-thousand-year-old native tradition.
