The Craft and Folk Art Museum will be closed until September 29, as it prepares for two upcoming exhibitions, which will be on display until January 5, 2014.
Artifacts of a Life Lived by the Living (to Live) features a group of artists who have created art to keep balance in their lives. These artists produce works in an almost ritualistic manner and use a variety of materials to express themselves. Each artist has their own style but it is common to see rhythms, patterns, and repetition. Related programs are included with the exhibition, such as a tour and a discussion with the curator, Chris Johanson.
Nathalie Miebach: Changing Waters is an exhibition dedicated to Miebach's works. She converts weather data into sculptures and musical works. Scientific information that could be daunting for a person to read is recreated into something fun and understandable for all ages. There will also be related programs to this exhibition, including CraftLab family workshops for everyone to participate in.
Check the CAFAM website for admission prices, directions, and any other events that will be coming up. It is open every day, except Monday.
