The MFA is one of our favorite Boston museums, and we always look forward to their exhibitions. A new show opening Tuesday looks especially interesting. The exhibition focuses on contemporary craft-based artists, and how their work blurs the lines between what has been traditionally considered ‘craft’, ‘art’, and ‘design.’ Works from more than 30 international artists, including ceramics glass, fiber, jewelry, metals, furniture, and wood, illustrate how the field is in a state of flux. How cool are these sneak peeks?
