We’re very excited that an exhibition co-curated by our very own Sr. Curator and Interim Associate Director Heather Lineberry is now showing at the prestigious Museum of Arts and Design (formerly the American Craft Museum) in New York.  Here’s a bit from our press release:

“The Arizona State University (ASU) Art Museum exhibition Intertwined: Contemporary Baskets from the Sara and David Lieberman Collection has been extended to show at Museum of Arts and Design in New York City through Sept. 12, 2010.

Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) requested an extension of the Intertwined tour for their institution after it completed a successful exhibition at ASU Art Museum and national five-city tour. Formerly the American Craft Museum, Museum of Arts and Design is the leading museum in the U.S. for the exhibition and interpretation of contemporary craft. This is the first ASU Art Museum-organized exhibition to travel to a major New York museum.”

Congratulations to Heather and her co-curator, artist and scholar Jane Sauer. And much thanks to Sara and David Lieberman for sharing their amazing collection and for continuing to support ASU Art Museum in many ways.
