The Center for Craft will host a Public Grand Reopening in their newly renovated space in downtown Asheville to welcome the community and introduce them to the new National Craft Innovation Hub.
Please join us for the reopening of our space in a building-wide celebration of the future of craft, which includes:
>> Craft Futures 2099 exhibition: To celebrate the Grand Reopening, the Center for Craft has invited ten local and national artists to imagine and create a craft object of the future! Influenced by the 1939 New York Worlds Fair, the first fair of its kind to use to the "future" as an organizing theme, the reopening exhibition is an exploration of what’s been and what’s to come in the world of craft, and it sets the tone for the Center’s ambitious programming ahead.
>> First look at the new coworking, event and meeting spaces tailored to meet the needs of Asheville’s creative sector.
Premier of five new artists commissions and installations by Jamil D. Harrison, Harvey Littleton, Old Wood Company, Tanya Aguiñiga, Andrew Hayes, and Shelter Collective.
>> UNC Asheville’s inaugural exhibition: Making Meaning looks towards the spaces where artworks collide and converge, where the viewer is called to change their own perspective and embrace new material languages that create meaning and imagine futures.
>> Plus additional future-themed immersive installations, hands-on activities, music, food and more!
