The James Renwick Alliance is an independent national nonprofit organization that celebrates the achievements of America’s craft artists and fosters scholarship, education and public appreciation of craft art.
The JRA was founded in 1982 and is the exclusive support group for the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, our nation’s showcase of contemporary American craft. Since its founding, the JRA has donated more than $3 million to the Renwick Gallery, and it has supported the purchase of more than 175 works for the Renwick Gallery collection.
The JRA also supports public programs in craft, including its annual Distinguished Artists Series, which brings craft artists to Washington, D.C. for workshops and lectures.
