Beyond Craft: Decorative Arts from the Leatrice S. and Melvin B. Eagle Collection highlights important studio objects made from the mid-1960s to the 2000s, with a special focus on the 1960s–1980s, the collection’s great strength. The Eagle Collection offers an extraordinary opportunity for in-depth study of the foundational period of studio craft history as well as a look at how artists active then have transcended historical traditions to create a new paradigm today.
