Lloyd Herman was the founding director of our national craft museum, the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art museum and, after 20 years at the Smithsonian returned to the Northwest. The University of Washington Press, publisher of his 1990 book, Art that Works: The Decorative Arts of the Eighties, Crafted in America, called him “one of the foremost authorities on America’s contemporary craft movement. For the past twenty-five years he has worked as a museum planner (Museum of Glass, Tacoma) and guest curator of exhibitions for museums, traveling exhibition services and the U. S. Information Agency. He has led craft trips to India, Jordan, Morocco, Vietnam and Iran, and lectures regularly on the evolution of “craft” into “art” and on the contemporary glass movement.
