Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with curator Mary Savig. As the Lloyd Herman Curator of Craft at the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery she is one of the co-curators of the 50th anniversary exhibition This Present Moment: Crafting a Better World. The bulk of the exhibition features 135 recently acquired works from women and artists of color who are expanding the canon of craft. In our interview we talk about the curatorial themes of the exhibition, how museum acquisition campaigns work, and the profiles of a handful of artists featured in the exhibition. The show will be on display at the Renwick Gallery until April 2023.
