Inspiring Reform: Boston's Arts and Crafts Movement

March 6, 1998 – July 5, 1998

Renwick Gallery
17th and Pennsylvania Ave., NW
Washington, DC

Location: 1st Floor

See 145 works—books, ceramics, furniture, jewelry, photos, and textiles—examine Boston's contributions to the Arts and Crafts movement between 1890 and 1930. The movement—which began in England as a reaction to the Industrial Revolution—valued individual, handmade objects that were both beautiful and utilitarian over those mass produced.

Organized by the Davis Museum and Cultural Center, Wellesley College, Mass.
