The Museum of Craft and Design is thrilled to present our first traveling exhibition, works by Bay Area artist Michael Cooper: A Sculptural Odyssey, 1968 – 2011. Exhibiting a striking selection of twenty exquisitely crafted and thought provoking pieces, Cooper showcases over four decades of his life’s work. A true testament to both form and function, Cooper is best known for his seductively complex and remarkably mobile metal and wood works. Ranging from pistol-packing tricycles, to fantastical furniture and highly stylized motorized vehicles, this awe-inspiring collection is not to be missed.
