Surveying one hundred years of craft making in America, this exhibition showcased more than one hundred eighty of the most important examples of American craft, including works in ceramic, glass, wood, fiber, and metal. This landmark historical survey featured more than two hundred works, spanning a period of nearly two hundred years. Beginning with the Industrial Revolution, the exhibition explores the many cultures and movements that have contributed to the development and refinement of American crafts during the last two centuries. Integrating the various media of handcrafted furniture, ceramics, fiber and textiles, basketry, glass, wood, jewelry and metal, the exhibition represents a broad base of craft-makers including: traditional craft makers, designer craftsmen of the Arts & Crafts Movement, the artists of the WPA programs of the 30s, post World War II studio craft pioneers and contemporary studio craft artists.
