Crafting a Better World”

Bert’s work will be included in this group exhibition highlighting the role that artists play in sparking essential conversations, stories of resilience, and methods of activism to demonstrate a more relational and empathetic world. The exhibition will focus on often-overlooked histories and contributions of women, people of color, and other marginalized communities.
This Present Moment marks the fiftieth anniversary of SAAM’s Renwick Gallery as the nation’s preeminent center for the enjoyment of American craft.
