9 Louis Vuitton Accessories for the Luxury Gifter This Holiday Season
Arts & Culture Event
The Smithsonian Craft Show at the National Building Museum presents some of the best American crafts from jewellery and textiles to ceramics and paper crafts. There's a chance to buy some unique objects for the individual and the home.
The Smithsonian Craft Show encourages artists to continue to grow and stretch the limits of their media and is committed to presenting the most thoughtful, original, and skilled American craft objects. Throughout the history of craft, exploration of new technology has frequently been a part of craft practice. More recentlly, repurposed materials, including found objects, as well as new ones given new uses and meanings, have been used increasingly as an art medium. Artists who incorporate repurposed materials are encouraged to specify it in their statement. We recognize that new technologies such as computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) are increasingly prevalent in the designing and/or making of contemporary studio crafts. The Smithsonian Craft Show is looking for one of a kind and limited edition objects that have been conceived and perfected by the artist's own hands and created in the artist?s studio. The committee and jury rely on the honor of the applicants to submit work in which CAD/CAM and other industrial techniques are simply tools, and have not become the driving force in the creative process.
