LJ Roberts | This Present Moment: Crafting a Better World | Renwick Gallery

Hales is excited to announce the participation of LJ Roberts in This Present Moment: Crafting a Better World opening on 13 May 2022 at the Renwick Gallery in the Smithsonian American Art Museum. 


This Present Moment: Crafting a Better World showcases American craft like never before. The exhibition highlights the role that artists play in our world to spark essential conversations, stories of resilience, and methods of activism—showing us a more relational and empathetic world. It centers more expansive definitions and acknowledgments of often-overlooked histories and contributions of women, people of color, and other marginalized communities.


On view at SAAM’s Renwick Gallery, This Present Moment activates two floors of gallery space, highlighting over 170 artworks from the museum’s permanent collection in a range of craft mediums from fiber and ceramics to glass and mixed media. Approximately 135 of the featured artworks are new acquisitions, never before seen at the Renwick Gallery.
