During times of upheaval, Craft Contemporary is looking to art to bring people together. Through Saturday, Oct. 31, the museum will be hosting a virtual “Potluck” which will include virtual clay workshops, Instagram conversations with artists, virtual studio tours and featured ceramic pieces.
As a culmination of the two-week Potluck event, Craft Contemporary will host an online auction of all donated ceramic pieces.
The American Alliance of Museums has predicted as many as 30% of museums could fail in this crisis.
“Creating new spaces for people to come together isn’t just vital to our mission today, it’s critical to our survival,” a spokesperson for the museum said.
All funds raised from the auction will go to maintaining the operations of Craft Contemporary, including K-12 school programs, community craft forums, workshops, artist promotion and conversation facilitation around exhibitions.
Located on Los Angeles’ historic Miracle Mile since 1965, Craft Contemporary reveals the potential of craft to educate, captivate, provoke and empower. With a focus on contemporary art made from craft media and processes, Craft Contemporary presents dynamic exhibitions by established and emerging artists and designers who are often underrepresented in larger art institutions.
Artists include Alex Anderson, Emily Sudd, Kathryn Hillier and many others.
