A short screening of the 2014 documentary on artist J. Fred Woell is followed by an informal discussion on craft today, with artists Patricia Wheeler and Robert Ebendorf, in celebration of the exhibition "OBJECTS: REDUX – 50 Years of Craft Evolution."

In 1969, the Smithsonian American Art Museum debuted "OBJECTS: USA," a sprawling exhibition featuring 308 craft artists and over 500 objects. The show would travel the United States and Europe, vaulting craft into the contemporary art milieu and forever changing the way we view material culture. Fifty years later, this tribute exhibition incorporates work by artists in the original display alongside historic and contemporary makers who expand upon and complicate the conversation.
