When the Museum of Contemporary Craft reopened in an expanded location in the summer of 2007, it threw a huge block party with local microbrews, gelato, live music, and an impressive array of artist demonstrations. Families mingled with artists, gallery owners, and donors, and the whole thing was a raging success. That pretty much captures what the museum is setting out to do: to make art and craft accessible, interesting, and fun. The calendar is packed with events, from formal tours, lectures, workshops, and demonstrations to casual coffee get-togethers during which a specific aspect of the craft world is discussed. The temporary exhibits may or may not strike a chord—depending on when you're here, you may find a broad retrospective on craft in America or a specific artist-based exhibit. At the very least, the gallery is full of distinctive items by mostly regional artists, from gorgeous ceramics to handmade jewelry and textiles.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 11 am to 6 pm, Thursdays until 8 pm.
