40 Under 40: Meet Craft Evangelist Gabriel Craig

By Americanart

It’s no secret that we’re excited for 40 under 40: Craft Futures to open at our Renwick Gallery July 20. If you’ve been following along, you know we’ve been featuring videos each of the 40 young artists created to introduce themselves to you. We got so many amazing and creative clips from them, it’s hard to choose favorites.

But today we do want to show you the video we received from Gabriel Craig, a metalsmith, writer, and self-proclaimed craft activist. The humor and drive Craig exhibits in his clip just makes us all the more excited to meet him in July. And given July is only a few weeks away, you must be curious as to how we’re coming along with preparation of the exhibition. We don’t want to spoil the surprise too much, but to feed your hunger for all things craft, visit our Flickr photostream for pictures of the installation as it unfolds. And don’t forget that you can become a part of craft history by making a donation to help the museum acquire works by all of the artists in the exhibition.
