California Visionaries - Seminal Studio Craft

The Craft in America Center will inaugurate its newly designed gallery with a landmark exhibition of over 40 historic key works by many of the most influential and innovative Californian craft artists from the mid-twentieth century.  

This exhibition will celebrate Californian visionary artists who shaped the future with a far-reaching commitment to expand craft, break barriers and forge new visions all their own.

This exhibition prominently features the foremost collection of California craft: the collection of Forest L. Merrill. Merrill's collection includes some of the finest examples of works made by revered Californian craft pioneers and visionaries over the past century. Since Merrill acquired his first work of art in the 1960s, he has taken a visionary approach to collecting in seeking out technical innovation, subtlety, and material mastery. Merrill has supported the limitless possibilities of craft and formed deep friendships with the artists who create these works.  

Opening Saturday, March 2 from 4-6pm
4pm: Q&A with Forrest L. Merrill
5pm: Reception
