Contemporary Craft Works

Offered by: SMITHSONIAN AMERICAN ART MUSEUM
Program Description:
Craft artists push beyond traditions by testing the limits of materials and techniques. Whether using clay, metal, glass, or fiber, these artists create works that blur the lines between art and craft and encourage us to see everyday objects in new ways. Videoconference presenters show American artworks from the museum’s collection using green screen. Through inquiry-based questions and discussion, presenters engage with participants as they explore artworks together. Program length is 45-60 minutes.
