Working Together: Shaping Our Field For The Future
A shift appears to be taking place in the making and marketing of handmade furniture — especially around how it is commissioned and collected. Are we at a precipice for furniture makers or at least a crossroads? Join a conversation about current methods of connecting the public with furniture and ways the artists and their work are and can be supported. By working together, two generations of furniture supporters formed the current landscape we inhabit. By working together in an informed way, we can continue to shape the future of this field. Bespoke commissions, design for industry, or an entirely new model — we will explore all of these in a candid conversation about where we are, how we arrived at this point, and possible ways to go forward.
Join American Craft Council College of Fellow honorees, Bruce Pepich and Tom Loeser, along with maker Sylvie Rosenthal and gallerist, Evan Snyderman as they discuss working together to shape the future of the field’s making and marketplace.
This program is made possible, in part, through the generous support of the American Craft Council’s Legacy Series.
