The Annex Marketplace is a new space added to 100 American Craftsmen in 2015. In this “experiential art space” you can see first-time and emerging artisans with unique craft objects. The Annex Marketplace is adjacent to the main Arena on the west side of the building and is open the same hours as the show. This year, enjoy live music and a special collaborative craft-making project in celebration of the Kenan Center’s 50th anniversary which will become a permanent hanging artwork on campus.
