Kayleigh Perkov specializes in American art viewed through the lens of craft and the decorative arts. She received her Ph.D. in Visual Studies at the University of California, Irvine in 2018. Her dissertation, “Giving Form to Feedback: Craft and Technological Systems circa 1968-1974,” focuses on pioneering craftspeople who synthesized handmaking and technology. This work was supported by The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design, the Newkirk Center for Science and Society, and a predoctoral fellowship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
The Center for Craft is expanding, adding an additional 7,000 ft² of program space within our historic 1912 building in downtown Asheville! During this time our building will be closed — reopening Fall 2019. Our Grants and Fellowships programs will continue to operate on a normal schedule.Close X
