The CraftPerspectives Series provides a forum for today’s leading artists, designers, scholars and curators to share their knowledge and pose important questions on issues in contemporary craft.
Events range from Garth Clark’s standing room only lecture How Envy Killed the Crafts Movement to conversations that engage the DIY community.
The program also includes Craft Conversations, a series of talks that are closely aligned with the Museum’s exhibitions and involve curators and artists in a more intimate and direct dialogue with the Museum audience. The CraftPerspectives Series provides both a vantage on craft in the 21st Century while also honoring the history of the studio craft movement.
With the integration of the Museum with Pacific Northwest College of Art, the program has the additional resources of the College’s community of artists, designers, writers and historians.
