The Haystack Mountain School of Crafts forever changed art, craft, and design in the 20th century through its process-based, communally oriented craft instruction. The immersive nature of the Haystack experience is only further enriched by its stunning Deer Isle campus.
This conservation between architect Toshiko Mori and designer James Carpenter addresses Haystack Mountain School of Crafts as a structure and as a space for craft instruction. Accompanying the landmark exhibition, In the Vanguard, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, 1950-1969, Mori and Carpenter will explore how the school’s unique campus design and groundbreaking pedagogy changed the careers of two preeminent figures in the field of modern architecture.
