Takaezu & Tawney: An Artist is a Poet debuts 12 new acquisitions to the Crystal Bridges collection that tell the story of a remarkable friendship between the two artists. The exhibition highlights how these two women shaped craft history in the US by expanding and redefining the possibilities of their preferred mediums: Takaezu in ceramics, Tawney in weaving.

The presentation includes seven ceramic sculptures by Takaezu and two major weavings, two drawings and an intimately scaled assemblage sculpture by Tawney.
