American Craft Council Moving (Mid)west

Yesterday the American Craft Council officially announced it will be moving its operations — and its amazing library — to Minneapolis in July 2010.

For 66 years the ACC has been based in NYC, but in order to reduce overhead costs a midwest move was decided to be the most strategic option to ensure the long-term health of the organization.

While I think it’s a shame for NYC to lose this important craft institution, Minneapolis seems like a good choice — last month’s ACC Conference was held there — and hopefully spending less on rent will allow the ACC to do more great programming and outreach.
