Just in time for the holidays, the 2011 Degenerate Craft Fair arrives to prove that quality, creative gifts don’t have to be expensive. Taking place on Saturday, December 10 from noon to 9pm and Sunday, December 11 from noon to 6pm at 159 Bleecker Street in New York City, the third annual event features works by over 75 artists and designers, including DCF founders Amy Wilson (faculty member BFA Visual and Critical Studies Department) and Shannon Broder (BFA 2011 Visual and Critical Studies), as well as several SVA students, faculty members, and alumni.
Most of the wares available at the Degenerate Craft Fair are priced under $50, and run the gamut from knitwear, handmade jewelry and ornaments to original paintings, sculptures, and artist books. The fair’s opening night reception from 6 – 9pm on Saturday features live music and free Brooklyn Brewery beer for those of age, and on Sunday, the first 50 visitors receive a tote bag full of goodies. For more information about the DCF and a full list of participating exhibitors and artists, visit the Degenerate Craft Fair Web site.
