Currently consisting of approx. 80 historical, contemporary and educational pieces of artwork, the collection documents a rich tradition in contemporary crafts over the past half-century with distinction. As we meet our 50th Year milestone, the Board of Directors and the Permanent Collections Committee recognizes the need to cultivate the collection so it may represent and inspire generations to come. We ask the membership, those by whom we mark this place in time, to continue to exhibit the generosity Florida Craftsmen members have repeatedly done in the past. The cultural significance of FC deserves preservation for the future, and the Permanent Collection is among our most enduring contributions to Florida society. During Florida Craftsmen's year-long anniversary celebration, we encourage our members and supporters to consider donating works of craft art or funds for the purchase of art to the Permanent Collection. Please contact Lorissa Hallenbeck, Gallery Director, for further information on Florida Craftsmen's collecting goals and accession policies.
The Board of Directors, staff and volunteers look to the membership in joining us for this upcoming year of celebrations and Florida Craftsmen's 50th Anniversary together.... in style!
