Art Escape Weekend
Celebrate the Magic of American Craft
October 7 – 9, 2016
Escape to the magic! Now in its seventh year, American Craft Week is the nation’s largest celebration of handmade American craft. The celebration began with a simple idea: What if everybody who makes, sells, exhibits, teaches or collects American craft all did something at the same time to spotlight artisan craft. This expression of our national heritage is not only a beautiful aesthetic for our homes and public places, it also creates American jobs, honors and preserves traditions, makes our nation’s communities more vibrant and spurs economic growth.
In the Historic Triangle, we celebrate American Craft Week as a community effort that we call Art Escape Weekend. Local galleries and artisans invite you to add your voice to the nation’s largest craft celebration.
