Craft in America

Three programs explore the vitality, history and significance of the craft movement in the United States and its impact on the nation's rich cultural heritage. "Memory," "Landscape" and "Community" feature stories of prominent craft artisans set against the larger historical context of craft itself. "Memory" focuses on the historical relevance of craft through the eyes of several contemporary pioneers in the field. The Emmy-nominated "Landscape" examines the interdependent relationship of craft artists to their media and the natural world. The final installment, "Community," highlights the social and emotional connections that crafts embody.
