Focus on the Collection: Craft & Tourism in Asheville
Wednesday, April 29, 2020

Free for Museum Members
Join Assistant Curator Whitney Richardson and Curatorial Fellow Sarah Kelly as they discuss the history of craft and tourism in Asheville. Using the Museum’s Collection, they will examine the makers of the region as well as the industries and organizations through which they sold. They will particularly highlight members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild from its founding until today.
