More than 100 exhibitors meet in Washington, D.C. at the National Building Museum to not only show and sell their limited edition creations; they also connect with visitors to discuss their work in person. This unique opportunity provides art lovers the opportunity to meet expert artisans in jewelry, furniture, glass, ceramics, and basketry.
