Searching for Hubbard in the 21st Century Appalachian South with Marilyn Zapf
The American Arts and Crafts Movement was championed by figures like Elbert Hubbard (1856–1915) at the turn of the 20th Century, but what, if any, of his ideals can be identified in craft today? This presentation will use Roycroft, an artisan community in East Aurora, NY founded by Hubbard in 1895, as a guide through Western North Carolina’s contemporary craft landscape.
Marilyn Zapf holds an MA in History of Design from the Royal College of Art/ Victoria and Albert Museum focusing on the history of craft and de/industrialization. Currently Zapf is the Assistant Director at The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design, curates Benchspace Gallery & Workshop (Asheville, NC).
After Zapf ’s talk, enjoy a reception and tour the Museum’s exhibitions on your own.
Held in conjunction with the Grove Park Inn Arts + Crafts Conference.
