Children’s Museum of the Arts is pleased to announce Maker, Maker, a group exhibition curated by Paul Laster and Renée Riccardo that explores the recent explosion of D.I.Y. Maker culture and the expanding relationship between fine art and craft.

Showcasing 10 contemporary artists and artist teams, the exhibition features handmade works that employ artisanal processes and materials such as ceramics, crochet, casting, papier-mâché, collage, macramé, woodworking, assemblage and quilting to create lively works of art.

Part innovator, creator, and recycler, the artists in the exhibition embrace the inventive, D.I.Y. mindset that arose from punk culture and is now embraced by artisans, Etsy crafters, and hackers alike. In an age of technology and conspicuous consumption, the artists in Maker, Maker attempt to bring the intimacy of the handmade back into their work.
