Despite these unprecedented times, the Museum of Craft and Design aims to continually question the conventional notion of art while making creativity accessible to everyone. In lieu of regularly scheduled workshops and events, MCD has launched MCD@Home.

We are partnering with artists and community collaborators to create new content for at-home projects based on the themes, concepts, and materials found within the museum’s signature programs and exhibitions.

Check back often for new additions to our MCD@Home library as well as our YouTube Channel as we continue to update videos and documentation of our online events.

Subscribe to MCD’s mailing list and follow us on social media to stay up to date on all MCD@Home projects.









If you have enjoyed creating and connecting with MCD@Home, please consider a donation of as little as $8, the cost of general admission to MCD. Your 100% tax-deductible contribution helps us ensure the continuation of our new virtual programming and pay of our staff. Gifts of any size make a lasting impact. Thank you for your support!
