Collection Highlights


The museum’s craft collections were acquired mainly during the fertile years of 1952-1964 when the Saint Paul Gallery and School of Art organized the Fiber/Clay/Metal national juried craft biennials.  Exhibitions such as Woodenworks and The Goldsmith in the 1970s continued to add remarkable craft pieces to the permanent collection.  Craft continues to be a focus of the museum’s collecting strategies.
