American Craft Museum
40 W. 53rd Street New York New York 10019
The mission of the ACM is to support craft by celebrating the talent of national and international master craftsmen. The galleries are arranged in a unique fashion, on a series of interior balconies, with curving stairways linking the different levels. The works on display are mostly contemporary crafts, though they aren't the abstract forms that most people would expect from contemporary art. Some pieces, are so outlandish that they are amusing to look at, while some have a social message at the center of the work. Almost all of the gallery space is devoted to rotating exhibits.

Access: Tues-Sun, 10am-6pm Open Until 8pm Thurs Closed Mondays, July 4, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.
Fees: Adults $5.00 Students & Seniors $2.50 Children under 12 Free Pay as you wish Thursdays, 6-8pm.
Phone: (212) 956-3535
