The A. David Tobin Seminar in the Arts

The Arts and Crafts movement, with its enormous influence on the fine and decorative arts in Europe and America in the early twentieth century, has a rich legacy in upstate New York. With Nancy Green, senior curator at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell, we'll explore the roots and products of this movement as well as a fine sampling of its regional locations and designs.

We'll examine Tiffany glass and the Berley Collection of British silver at the Johnson Museum, and we'll visit several of Ithaca's vintage Arts and Crafts homes, including the only Gustav Stickley house in the Finger Lakes. In Syracuse, we'll see the home of highly innovative potter Adelaide Robineau; a superb Arts and Crafts antique store; the Everson Museum's renowned collection of art pottery; and the Stickley factory in Manlius.
