Check Out Crafts by U.S. Artists at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum

The handiworks of American artists are always on full display at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, but only those that fall under the umbrella of crafting. The rich history of creating in the United States creates a colorful tapestry that spans the decades from the 19th century to the present day.

Only a stone’s throw from the White House, the Renwick Gallery hides away in a historic brick building. As part of the larger Smithsonian Museum family, it offers free admission on a daily basis. Come to see the ever-changing exhibits and the permanent collection of crafts at the gallery. Now through the beginning of May, you can catch Disrupting Craft, a special display. It showcases unique, modern pieces by four artists who emphasize emotion and inclusiveness as integral parts of art.
