The 2018 Scholars Symposium is generously funded by the Arts & Crafts Research Fund and by Leigh Ann and Bruce Johnson. 

Stickley Weekend will commence with the 8th annual Scholars Symposium, beginning at 10 a.m. Established to encourage serious and rigorous scholarship related to the Arts and Crafts movement, the Symposium annually includes a roster of distinguished and emerging scholars.

 

This year’s Symposium will begin with the Amy Stahl Memorial lecture and keynote presentation by Greg Wittkopp, Director of Cranbrook Center for Collections and Research at Cranbrook Educational Community in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Whittkopp’s presentation, entitled “A Glorious Finale: George Booth, Cranbrook, and the Arts and Crafts Movement in Detroit,” will focus on the rich Arts and Crafts history of Cranbrook institutions.

 

The keynote address will be followed by a presentation from emerging scholar Shelley Cathcart. In her lecture, Cathcart will address the history and legacy of American craft, using the living history museum Old Sturbridge Village as a lens.

 

Following a break for lunch onsite, the Symposium will culminate with a panel discussion featuring the authors of the forthcoming publication American Art Pottery: The Robert A. Ellison Jr. Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The authors will highlight exciting new discoveries uncovered during their extensive research. Distinguished panelists will include: Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, the Anthony W. and Lulu C. Wang Curator of American Decorative Arts, Metropolitan Museum of Art; Dr. Martin Eidelberg, Professor Emeritus, Rutgers University and Adrienne Spinozzi, Assistant Research Curator of American Decorative Arts, Metropolitan Museum of Art.
