In a season of heated political discussion, Blockfort has partnered with the Midwest Craft Con to host an exhibition of craft as activism. Selected from a call-for-entries, these works cross traditional craft with topics political and social justice, showing just how loudly modern craft can speak as an art form.
Artists featured in the exhibition include: Bonnie Peterson, Alyson Toone, Jessica Wohl, Al Hoff, Rachel Baker, Zak Foster, Jen Edwards, and Letitia Kenemer.
The exhibition will be on view from February 4 to February 28. A closing reception will be held at Blockfort Gallery on Thursday, February 27, 6-9pm at 162 N 6TH St, Columbus, OH 43215.
