Berkshire Fine Arts reviews the Granoff Center.
On Monday, March 7th, Pierre-Alexis Dumas '91, Chief Creative Officer of Hermès delivered a lecture entitled: A Journey on Silk from Art to Craft. A standing room only crown listened to Dumas discuss the constant tension of design challenging craft that helps us to develop skill and knowledge. The lecture, one in a series born in 2008, was born out of the desire to challenge tradition and bridge fine and contemporary art together with silk-printing craft.
