Accompanying the second in a series of eight exhibitions designed to comprehensively survey the evolution of 20th-century American crafts, this catalogue showcases more than 160 diverse objects reflecting the little-studied achievements of African American, Appalachian, Hispanic and Native American artisans in the 1920s and 30s as well as the widespread revival of Colonial craft traditions during the period, the selection encompassing furniture, ceramics, basketry, textiles, metalwork and glassware. Fourteen essays investigate the socio-political context of interwar craft revival movements in the United States, examine in detail each of the featured revival styles, and discuss such topics as the handicraft projects sponsored by the WPA and other New Deal agencies and the influence of African American pottery on American ceramic production.
