Symposium: Nation Building: Craft and Contemporary American Culture

Session 3 - Craft at War

Live webcast will begin at scheduled time and will be available for review as soon as the program is finished.

This symposium will examine craft's increasingly urgent role within contemporary American culture. Coinciding with the fortieth anniversary of the Renwick Gallery as the Smithsonian American Art Museum's branch museum for contemporary craft and decorative arts, this program seeks to broaden the dialogue surrounding craft's recent histories, and to articulate rapid changes to the field since the beginning of the current century.
