Fuller Craft Museum offers unprecedented access to its permanent collection through a monthly interview series, Collection Spotlight.
This online program features select artists from our collection in conversation with Artistic Director and Chief Curator Beth McLaughlin. Special guests will share insights about the objects, their broader creative practice, and the contemporary craft field.
Please join us on the second Wednesday of each month, live at 4:00 pm, for Collection Spotlight as we bring works outside the museum walls and into viewers’ homes.
