Fabric flowers will blossom and plushy robots will belly up to the Craft Bar at Museum of Craft & Folk Art Thursday, June 3.
Yep, it’s that time of the month again -- time to get your craft on. Every first Thursday for the last six, MOCFA SF has hosted a Craft Bar, along with Etsy Labs, and the event appears to be gathering steam among the Bay’s many manic DIY-ers. The event, which began life as a humble Stitch-and-Bitch gathering of around 30, assembled 250 the last time around. “That was our biggest Craft Bar yet,” says MOCFA store associate buyer Amelia Strader, who co-organizes the event with the store’s manager and head buyer Kpoene Kofi-Bruce. “They keep getting bigger each time because word keeps spreading.”
There a lot of excitement in the air about the new show opening tonight at the Museum of Craft & Folk Art. Inside/Outside: Artist Environments features Edgar Arceneaux and Watts House Project, Jacob Sockness, Merritt Wallace, and Megan Wilson, along with historic documentation of famed California environments, and a new commission by Mike Shine. "Inside/Outside examines the artist environment builders who generally transform their homes, yards, or other aspects of their personal surroundings into multifaceted works of art that embody and express the locale—time, era, place—in which each of them live and work."
