Wendell Castle Remastered at The Museum of Art and Design, October 20, 2015 – February 28, 2016

Wendell Castle Remastered is the first museum exhibition to examine the digitally crafted works of Wendell Castle, acclaimed figure of the American art furniture movement. A master furniture maker, designer, sculptor, and educator, Castle is now in the sixth decade of a prolific career that began in 1958—one that parallels the emergence and growth of the American studio craft movement.” — The Museum of Art and Design
