Founded in  San Diego in 1947, the Allied Craftsmen have been a significant  community of mutual support and inspiration, many of whose earliest  members are featured in the Museum’s past exhibition SAN DIEGO’S CRAFT REVOLUTION – From Post War Modern to California Design. Featuring current work of this group of 68 active members, this  exhibition will demonstrate the continuing vitality of one of the  nation’s few remaining craftsmen’s groups that proliferated in the  post-World-War-II era.
