STUDENT CRAFT 2014 - Useful Forms is a juried exhibition of craft work created by high school students across San Diego County during the 2013/14 school year. The theme of this exhibition takes direct inspiration from the Museum’s mission and focuses on objects made with a functional purpose. Students working in clay, wood, metal and fiber have created vessels, jewelry and other objects of use. With this exhibition, the Museum celebrates the continuing tradition of craft in our community and the creative skills being developed at the schools in our region that support these programs.
