The Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery has housed the institution’s contemporary craft program since 1972. Beginning Friday, the gallery celebrates those forty years of creativity and looks ahead with 40 under 40: Craft Futures. The exhibition explores evolving notions of craft within a variety of fields, including sculpture, industrial design, and sustainable manufacturing. The forty works by artists born since ’72 are showing through February.

Motion sensors dictate a different experience for each viewer through mid-August.
