Member and VIP Exhibition Preview

MCD’s Members of all levels are invited to the Exhibition Preview for She Bends: Neon as Soulcraft.

Museum of Craft and Design presents an exhibition curated by Kelsey Issel and Meryl Pataky of She Bends, opening summer of 2024.

She Bends: Neon as Soulcraft is an inquiry into the significance of manual trade skills and their impact on our connection to the material world. This exhibition focuses on neon bending for its embodied engagement and the diverse knowledge base demanded by this craft, spanning physics, chemistry, and spatial abilities. How does exposure to such skills among young adults nurture innovative approaches to sustainability, social responsibility, and creative problem-solving? Learn more.

Grab a drink, meet the artists and curators, and be the first to experience the new exhibition! Complimentary valet parking will be available.

Members will receive an invite and RSVP link via e-mail. If you are a member and didn’t receive the link please contact
