"The oldest continuously running craft institution in the United States," the Museum of Contemporary Craft (MoCC) was founded in 1937, and today, is run in partnership with Portland’s Pacific Northwest College of Art, “making the joint institution one of the largest organizations devoted to the visual arts in the state of Oregon.” While the museum’s galleries offer two floors, 4,500 square feet of exhibitions, and the chance to explore artworks from Northwest and internationally recognized artists working in ceramics, wood, metal, glass, fiber and mixed media, you can also purchase contemporary—and locally made—crafts “with a modern design focus” in The Gallery Store at the MoCC, as well as hear talks and participate in hands-on demonstrations.
