Smithsonian Craft Show 2012

by David Mitchell on April 16, 2012

It’s April in DC so you know what that means, it’s time for the Smithsonian Craft Show. This year the show is celebrating its 30th Anniversary. What do you think the crafts were like in 1982? The Smithsonian Craft Show is an annual event held at the National Building Museum, which celebrates everything handmade. And over the past couple years this show has brought in more and more young and innovative artisans. If you haven’t been in a while I highly recommend going. One of the great things about a show like this is that you actually get to meet the talented artists who crafted the piece you are about to purchase. So, not only is the craft show full of beautiful objects but also there is a personal quality to everything. Last year we discovered such artist as, Michael Bauermeister, Olen Hsu and Christine Adcock who all three are returning to this Craft Show.
