Museum of Arts and Design says…

Crafting Modernism: Mid-Century American Art and Design explores the rich interplay of art and design in all craft media that exploded across the United States during the postwar era. The exhibition will focus on the protagonists of this period, its rapid growth and development within a changing American culture, and its international context. Crafting Modernism covers a 25-year period that begins with the craftsman-designers of the 1940s and 1950s, and concludes in 1969 with innovative works that upended traditional concepts of craft, and included humor, psychological content, and social commentary in provoctive and unique works of art.
