The exhibition This Present Moment: Crafting a Better World showcases the dynamic landscape of American craft today. This symposium, organized in conjunction with the exhibition, highlights the role that artists play in our world to spark essential conversations, stories of resilience, and methods of activism—showing us a more relational and empathetic world. Led by SAAM curators Nora Atkinson and Mary Savig, artists and scholars discuss ways in which everyday objects can teach us lessons about who we are and the future we are creating.
