Craft & Decorative

The Museum’s collection contains many fine examples of American studio craft and decorative arts, including glass, ceramic, and mixed media objects. One prominent work in the collection is Viola Frey’s Leaning Man III. Since its acquisition in 1997, the figure has towered over visitors to the Carmichael Student Center and found its way into the campus vernacular.
