American Craft Council says
Jack Lenor Larsen, a prominent figure in the history of craft, is one of the most influential textile designers in the world. Working for a business founded in his name, he produced textile patterns and designs for the interior, eventually moving into carpet and furniture design. His handmade pieces incorporate innovative techniques based on traditional practices and methods learned through his many travels.

On the occasion of the purchase of his business in 1997, it was decided that Larsen’s entire archives would be donated to the University of Minnesota and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Join us for a talk with Stephanie Watson Zollinger, one of the leading scholars of Larsen’s work and the primary person responsible for organizing the Jack Lenor Larsen Oral History Project through the Goldstein Museum and College of Design.

Zollinger is an associate professor in the interior design program at the University of Minnesota. She holds a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in interior design from Kansas State University as well as a doctoral degree in adult education from the University of Arkansas. As an interior design scholar, Zollinger has worked extensively with the Larsen Collection. Results of her archival research have been disseminated in exhibition catalogs and through academic presentations and manuscripts.

Plus, you can also join us for an exclusive members-only tour of the Jack Lenor Larsen archives at the Goldstein Museum of Design on December 11. Not an ACC member? Not a problem! Simply sign up when you register for the tour.

The American Craft Council presents a series of public conversations about craft, making, and art in the American Craft Council Library, which is located on the second floor of the historic Grain Belt Brewhouse in northeast Minneapolis. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the conversation starting at 7:00 p.m.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
