Preserving Tradition through Arts & Crafts
Contemporary art practices emerge from an organic evolution of art and culture through the ages, but the act of making decorative and functional objects as a way to depict, remember, and understand the world around us has existed for tens of thousands of years. What traditions, practices, and crafts are kept? Which fade away? What is our obligation to preserve the traditions of the past? Join us for a panel discussion exploring the complexities of cultural preservation.
