Event Dates

July 2 - September 19, 2021, Sunday - Wednesday, 12:00pm - 5:00pm

Guest curator Benjamin Liggett brings together local and regional makers in an exhibition dedicated to the art, craft, and design of stringed instruments. Following his training at the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix, Arizona, Liggett became a full-time luthier at Bishline Banjos. Liggett conveys his passion for creating instruments in this exhibition, which is a survey of stringed instruments from a variety of luthiers that represent the culture and craftsmanship of our region. With a documentary of the making process, a wide range of educational programs, and a multitude of performances, this show shines a light on this incredibly craft.
