Contemporary Craft’s 50th Anniversary in 2021 will be celebrated across a year of revelatory programming in our new home! We’re launching our Golden Anniversary with an online celebration of Contemporary Craft – an event that you won’t want to leave home to enjoy!

Our yearlong celebration begins on April 10 with a look back at artistic highlights and exhibitions, featuring an auction of artworks by finalists and winners of the esteemed Raphael Founder’s Prize. This prize represents the finest in craft art in glass, wood, metals, found materials, and ceramics! Join major artists, craft collectors, and leaders in the field as we remember important exhibitions and work – and get a preview of exciting programming and exhibitions that will debut during our 50th Anniversary year.
