Morven in May: A Celebration of Art, Craft and Garden
May 1, 2 & 3, 2015
One of New Jersey’s most anticipated spring rituals, Morven in May, is a juried exhibition and sale of contemporary, American-made fine craft and welcomes a select group of thirty-five professional fine craft artisans from around the country. Art mediums include glass, ceramics, decorative and wearable fiber, mixed media, jewelry, furniture and basketry, and all are displayed in gallery-style booths in a grand tent on the museum’s Great Lawn.
The weekend fun kicks off on the Great Lawn with a Friday evening preview party, and then opens to the public for two days of art and garden treasure hunting! All proceeds from Morven in May help fund the museum’s exhibitions, historic gardens, and educational programs.
Morven in May’s 2015 artist jurors: James C. Steward, Director, Princeton University Art Museum; David Rago, Founding Partner, Rago Arts; and Veronica C. Roberts, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Blanton Museum of Art (U. of Texas)
