7th Annual Scholars SymposiumWeekendLogo2017

Sponsored by the Arts & Crafts Research Fund

Saturday, October 7, 2017                          

9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

at the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms  


The 7th Annual Scholars Symposium, sponsored by the Arts & Crafts Research Fund, was established to encourage rigorous scholarship related to the Arts and Crafts movement. The museum's ongoing exhibition, Original: Gustav Stickley Furnishes His Log House, will provide a rich starting point for the 2017 Symposium, which will revolve around the theme: "Home at the Turn of the Century: New Perspectives."


Original Exhibition co-curator Dr. Jonathan Clancy will present the Amy Stahl Memorial Lecture.  This lecture, "Unpacking the Log House: Stickley as Consumer and Collector," will address his research related to the exhibition.


The Symposium will also feature a lecture by Marilyn Fish, a noted independent art historian. Fish is renowned in Arts and Crafts circles as the author of the New Craftsman Index, a guide to the entire 15-year run of Gustav Stickley's magazine, The Craftsman.  Fish will present a lecture about Mary Fanton Roberts, who served as editor of The Craftsman from 1905 until its final edition in 1916.


The Symposium will culminate with a Q & A featuring all of the speakers. A light lunch with the scholars at the Stickley Museum will follow immediately.  We hope you'll join us and offer your support of Arts and Crafts scholarship.
