The Center for Art in Wood is pleased to present Pennsylvania Made an exhibition that shines a light on its Museum Collection, curated by Artistic Director Jennifer-Navva Milliken. The Center has built an extensive collection for over forty years, and this is the first time since moving to its current space in 2011 that there has been a focus on the collection in the Gerry Lenfest Gallery. Pennsylvania Made brings together more than 100 works—vessels, furniture, and sculpture among them—that show the myriad ways that wood inspires and motivates Pennsylvania artists and makers.
