'The Good Making of Good Things' Opening Reception
Join us at the ASU Art Museum Ceramics Research Center to celebrate the opening of our new exhibition "The Good Making of Good Things: Craft Horizons Magazine 1941–1979," which features masterworks from our permanent collection in ceramics, fibers, glass and wood.
During its nearly 40 years in print, Craft Horizons documented the craft movement as it happened.
This exhibition pairs works from ASU Art Museum’s collection that were made by artists featured in the magazine with articles, reviews and letters from readers to illustrate the essential role Craft Horizons played in the development of craft in the United States from 1941–1979.
We will be joined by our curators, who share a passion for mid-century modern design and craft
• Elizabeth Essner, Brooklyn, New York: Independent writer and curator
• Lily Kane, Nashville, Tennessee: Independent writer and curator
• Meaghan Roddy, Brooklyn, New York: Senior vice president, senior international specialist, Design Department, Phillips Auction House
