‘Craft in America: Service,’ at North Bennet Street School

Be the first to see this latest episode of the Peabody Award-winning series. “Craft in America: Service” tells the story of craft in the military by documenting the power of the handmade to inspire, motivate, and heal. The episode traces the origins of the Army Arts & Crafts Program, the G.I. Bill and their impact on today’s soldiers and veterans. Through their own words, five craft artists reveal what makes their work – and the lives they lead – unique.

Featured craft artists include ceramic artists Ehren Tool, Judas Recendez and Peter Voulkos as well as paper artist Pam DeLuco and saddler Eugene Burks, Jr.  Carol Sauvion, Executive Director of the Peabody Award-winning “Craft in America” series will introduce the episode and moderate a discussion following the screening. The event marks the exclusive first viewing of the episode in the Boston area.

The event will be held on Wednesday, October 29 at 6pm at the Windgate Gallery in the school, 150 North Street.
