Connections: Contemporary Craft from the Permanent Collection at the Renwick Gallery

July 1, 2016 – Indefinitely

Renwick Gallery
17th and Pennsylvania Ave., NW
Washington, DC

Location: Grand Salon

The permanent collection returns to the Renwick Gallery with a dynamic new presentation of 80+ objects celebrating craft as a discipline and an approach to living in the modern world. The installation includes iconic favorites alongside new acquisitions made during the museum’s renovation, which have never before been displayed at the museum. Nora Atkinson, The Lloyd Herman Curator of Craft, selected the objects and conceived the innovative presentation. Atkinson’s arrangement breaks from typical chronological and medium-based display formats to instead focus on the interconnectivity of objects and the overlapping stories they tell.
