Crafting Modernism: Midcentury American Art and Design explores the rich interplay of art and design in all craft media (clay, fiber, wood, metal, glass, and alternative materials) that exploded across the United States during the postwar era. The exhibition and catalogue focus on the protagonists of this period, its rapid growth and development within a changing American culture, and its international context.

This exhibition examines the innovative post WWII designs of creators like sculptor Isamu Noguchi, textile designer Dorothy Lieves and furniture maker George Nakashima--and how their work brought handmade objects up to date.
