Community in the Making: Expanding the Craft Field
Craft thrives on collaboration. This panel explores the roles of different institutions in advocating for the craft field, supporting artists, and expanding audiences. This conversation brings together panelists with varied professional associations to foreground the range of individuals and institutions forming the craft community. The panel addresses craft in the region and institutions in Arkansas, including discussion of a major exhibition on craft opening at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in October 2020.
