Following its debut at the acclaimed Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, the exhibition “Crafting America” is on display through Sept. 12 at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University.

The new exhibition, organized by the Crystal Bridges Museum, celebrates the skill and individuality of craft within the broad context of American art – from jewelry to furniture to sculptures and more. While many works are from the organizing museum, others are loans from private collections and major institutions like the National Museum of the American Indian and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Featuring 90 works in ceramics, fiber, wood, metal, glass and other materials, “Crafting America” presents a diverse and inclusive story of American craft from the 1940s to today. Esteemed artists in the exhibit include Sonya Clark, Beatrice Wood, Shan Goshorn, Nick Cave and Maria Martinez.
