The Academy Art Museum Craft Show will be held October 11-13, 2019. In its 22nd year, the show will again be an indoor, juried craft show featuring approximately 70 artists from across the United States.
Celebrating over 61 years, this year Aaron Taylor Kuffner has been named the Visionary Artist for the 2019 Academy Art Museum Craft Show!
Aaron Taylor Kuffner is an American born conceptual artist, based in New York. Kuffner’s dynamic work reaches far outside conventional forms of representation. His pieces often take the form of multi-year projects that require in-depth research, collaboration with field experts and the development of new specialized skill sets. Each project provides unique conceptual tools that further the evolution of consciousness through the experience of beauty and the sublime.
Museum Craft Show Chairman Craig Fuller states, “Aaron Taylor Kuffner perfectly represents this year’s Craft Show theme, ‘Celebrating the Makers.’ The design and creativity that are Kuffner’s hallmark will delight all of those who see his work; and, Kuffner’s Artist Talk on Sunday, October 6 at 2 p.m. provides an excellent opportunity to meet this extraordinary artist/maker as we head into the week of the Craft Show, October 11 to 13.” Visionary Artist Aaron Taylor Kuffner will present his Artist’s Talk as part of the Kittredge-Wilson Lecture Series.
This year’s art and craft show as always plays an important role in continuing to provide art exhibits and programs for all who come to visit the Academy Art Museum.
