In early May each year, Morven Museum & Garden welcomes 36 contemporary craft artists from around the U.S. for its Morven in May, a craft and plant sale weekend raising funds for the organization.
Lena Stringari, deputy director of The Guggenheim Museum, selected this year’s exhibitors, whose exquisite work in glass, ceramics, wood, decorative and wearable fiber, jewelry, furniture, metal, and basketry will be displayed in gallery-style booths under a grand tent on the museum’s Great Lawn, 55 Stockton Street, Princeton.
In addition to hosting one of the finest contemporary craft shows in the region, Morven will present its annual heirloom plant sale. Now, in its 17th year, the plant sale includes unique varieties of annuals and perennials, and flowering shrubs, with a selection of plants propagated from Morven’s own garden.
