As one of Portland’s oldest cultural institutions – established in 1937 – the recently relocated and rebranded museum promises to be a vibrant center for investigation and dialogue, expanding the definition of craft and the ways audiences experience it. Questions are posed, conversations ignited through curated exhibitions, thoughtful publications, provocative programs and special events.

The Museum’s inaugural exhibition surveys the dynamic evolution of the American craft movement since the Industrial Revolution, recognizing many of the significant social, cultural, political and artistic contributions that make American craft distinctly American.
