Most people will recognize 1969 as the year that the massive concert Woodstock took place in Bethel, New York, and American astronaut Neil Armstrong planted the Stars and Stripes on the Moon.
But 1969 was also the year that crafts came into their own as a recognized art form in the U.S., thanks to the exhibition “OBJECTS: USA” at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The wide-ranging show featured 308 craft artists and more than 500 objects.
A little more than 50 years later, some of those objects have arrived at the form & concept gallery in Santa Fe. From Jan. 31 to March 27, “OBJECTS: REDUX – 50 years of Craft Evolution,” which features the work of both historical and contemporary artists, will be on display at the Guadalupe Street gallery.
