Tuesday Program: The Handicraft Guild and Building

Event Date: Tuesday, July 25, 2017
Event Time: 11:00 am 

Marcia Anderson and Rolf Anderson

At the turn of the twentieth century, Minneapolis became a national center for the arts movement known as Arts and Crafts. The city’s Handicraft Guild led the way. Founded by women, the Handicraft Guild made the arts in Minneapolis more democratic and populist by offering classes like pottery and metalwork to artists and teachers. The building still stands today. Marcia Anderson served as a senior curator at the Minnesota Historical Society and is the author of “Art for Life’s Sake: The Handicraft Guild of Minneapolis,” from Minnesota 1900: Art and Life on the Upper Mississippi, 1890-1915. Rolf Anderson is a past president of the Minnesota Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians.
