American Craft Council Awards
College of Fellows
Criteria for nomination are few, but significant. An artist must demonstrate leadership in the field, outstanding ability as an artist and/or teacher, and 25 years or more of professional achievement as an American craftsperson. Nominated by the active College of Fellows, the distinction is recognition of meaningful contribution to the field not by critics, scholars, or collectors, but by one’s peers. It has become appropriately cherished by its recipients, who on joining the ranks of the College are required only to continue its legacy of nomination and recognition of the successive generations of craftspeople.
In addition to artists, individuals who have made their own significant contribution to the craft movement have are nominated and elected as Honorary Fellows, their designation including all the distinction and recognition of the College.
