The making of "40 under 40: Craft Futures"
This set of images gives you a glimpse behind-the-scenes of the preparation for 40 under 40: Craft Futures exhibition at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

40 under 40: Craft Futures features forty artists born since 1972, the year the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s contemporary craft and decorative arts program was established at its branch museum, the Renwick Gallery. The exhibition investigates evolving notions of craft within traditional media such as ceramics and metalwork, as well as in fields as varied as sculpture, industrial design, installation art, fashion design, sustainable manufacturing, and mathematics. The range of disciplines represented illustrates new avenues for the handmade in contemporary culture.

40 under 40: Craft Futures was on display from July 20, 2012 through February 3, 2013. Please see our website for more information, and details on how to help us acquire works from the exhibition.
