Royal Craft: The History of the Roycroft Through the Lens of Six Artworks

February 10, 2022, 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM (US Central)

—  Registration for this event has been closed.

Guest lecture by Alan Nowicki, Roycroft Campus Program Director

Elbert Hubbard was a Gilded Age businessman who left his industrial life to create the Roycroft, one of the first Arts and Crafts communities in America. A brief history of the site will be told through historical photographs and the examination of six works of art housed on the Campus. The story behind each of these unique artifacts is the tale of the Roycroft itself; from the philosophy of Hubbard, the ideals of the movement, the artists who created these objects, and its widespread appeal at the beginning of the 20th century. In conjunction with the exhibition Arts & Craftsman: Simplicity, honesty, and truth to materials in the Farm House Museum. Exhibition and programs support provided by Carole Pletcher.
