Smithsonian Craft-Optimism 2021

    I’m soooo soooo (soooo) excited to be announcing that my work has been accepted into Smithsonian’s Craft-Optimism, a curated, climate-conscious makers’ market.

    It was no easy feat to be included, so I consider it a great honor. Each of the 100+ artists had to be nominated to enter, then pass through a rigorous jury prior to acceptance.

    The result? The best of the best in beautifully-made, handcrafted American goods that educate the public about climate change or inspire or model a sustainable response to climate change.

    It’s the FIRST show of its kind.

    The show is being produced by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee (the same committee that organizes the well-known Smithsonian Craft Shows.) Proceeds of the event support grants to the Smithsonian.
