Nanette's Gifts

The exhibit Nanette's Gifts includes works by ceramic art luminaries Mary Frank, Patti Warashina, Tip Toland, Ken Price, Robert Brady, Richard DeVore, Adrian Saxe, Daisy Youngblood and Paula Winokur.

Laitman, who died March 23, 2020, was a principal benefactor and founder of New York City's Museum of Arts and Design. She served on the Museum's Board of Directors for 25 years, including as its president. Her visionary and unparalleled contribution acknowledging the lives and work of craft artists through the Nanette L. Laitman Documentation Project for Craft and Decorative Arts in America, at the Smithsonian Archives of American Art, assures that the oral histories and the papers of many groundbreaking craft artists will not be lost.

Exhibition opens February 25th by appointment.
