The Museum of Craft and Design has been homeless for three years. But, it’s finally found a home in the historic American Industrial Center building in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood and is now open with an exciting new exhibition.

“This location gives us an opportunity to broaden our creativity and design in an area already buzzing with activity,” JoAnn Edwards, co-founder and executive director of the museum, said during a press preview of the new space.

The 8,500-square-foot museum has a clean modern esthetic with high vaulted ceilings, concrete floors, and a massive front window. It’s moveable walls allow for changeable show space and rotating exhibits.

Kicking off its inaugural weekend on April 6 and 7, the museum is now featuring a major retrospective of noted contemporary sculptor Michael Cooper and work by ceramic installation artist Rebecca Hutchinson and jewelry designer Arline Fisch.
