Urban Wood Encounter 2015: RAM Explores Contemporary Furniture
September 25, 2015 – January 3, 2016
This show emphasizes creative uses for urban wood, which is rescued from trees that are not harvested for their
timber value, and might usually find their way into landfills when they succumb to age, injury, or disease. Urban Wood
offers an expansive lens for understanding material use and value. A collection of a wide range of furniture and objects,
this exhibition reflects regional artists applying their individual styles and personal interests to this often-discarded
wood. Aligning with its contemporary crafts focus, RAM is the first museum to feature this annual event, which also
showcases area talent.
