From jewelry to graphic novels, enjoy fast-paced presentations by not-so-conventional craftspeople about how they work, think, and create. This event is the third in a series organized by the Commonwealth of Craft, a consortium of Boston-area organizations engaged with contemporary craft. A free reception follows at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.
Boston legends Neptune will perform as the house band for the evening. Neptune’s origins trace to 1994 as a sculpture project by Boston artist/musician Jason Sanford, who forged the band’s haphazard guitars and reluctant drums from scrap steel and found objects. Eight lineups, twenty-four releases and hundreds of instruments later, the band continues to wrench its sound spatter on self-built instruments to often confounded audiences around the world.
