Celebrating the Renwick’s 50th Anniversary with “This Present Moment”

A year ago the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery staff invited us to collaborate on the design of a special book cover. This catalogue commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Renwick—the nation’s premier museum dedicated to American craft.

Together, we developed a design using a vintage, black and white photo of the museum facade transformed into more than thirty different color combinations. The acetate “dustjacket” has “This Present Moment” (the title) screened on the front.

We couldn’t be more thrilled with how they look! Thanks to everyone at SAAM and the Renwick for including us in your celebration. And be sure to stop by and see the exhibition, up until April 2023.
