Eudorah M. Moore: The Journey of a Visionary Exhibition (September 7 – October 25, 2013)
The Craft in America Center proudly honors Moore’s legacy in an exhibition entitled Eudorah M. Moore: The Journey of a Visionary, which will chronicle her career. The exhibition will be realized through objects, photo documentation, filmed interviews, catalogs and ephemera associated with Moore’s California Design Program, her founding of the Pasadena Art Alliance (1954) and her role as Visual Arts Coordinator for the NEA (1978-1981). Highlights will revisit the Islands in the Land exhibition through a select display of original objects and photographs. Also included will be a celebration of Moore’s California Design 1910, spotlighting its role as the groundbreaking exhibition to chart the California Arts and Crafts Movement.
The Eudorah M. Moore: The Journey of a Visionary exhibition will underscore Moore’s philosophy on creativity, her genuine support of craft artists, her joyful outlook on life, and the legacy of her singular imprint.
