In a world of sameness, craft illuminates difference
Incorporated in 1897, the Society of Arts and Crafts has been at the forefront of the American craft movement for over 120 years. Our founders developed standards of excellence in design and technical mastery for crafts that inspired the American Arts and Crafts Movement.
The dual mission of the Society of Arts and Crafts is to encourage the creation, collection, and promotion of the work of contemporary craft artists; and advance the public appreciation of fine craft. To fulfill our mission, the Society sponsors exhibitions, the Artist Awards Programs, educational programming, and shows that promote the work of exemplary craft on an ongoing basis.
The Society is supported by the Mass Cultural Council
