JRA Support to the Renwick
For over thirty years the Alliance has helped the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum build the nation’s premier collection of contemporary craft art. We have:
- Provided over $3 million to support Renwick Gallery acquisitions, exhibitions, public programs, publications and fellowships
- Raised $500,000 toward the Renwick Gallery renovation.
- Funded the James Renwick Fellowship in American Craft for 30+ scholars
- Contributed over 183 objects to the permanent collection through member’s donations and by providing funds for the acquisitions of major pieces by notable craft artists.
