We are living in an unprecedented moment, where our notion of “normal” is turned upside down. On behalf of AJF’s board and staff, I want you to know that we’re thinking about you and your families at this time, and hoping you’re staying safe, healthy, and protected.

Remembering Kenneth R. Trapp (1943–2019)

Curator-in-Charge of the Renwick Gallery
Ron Porter

I met Ken Trapp at a luncheon during SOFA Chicago, just after he had left the Oakland Museum as the curator of decorative arts to take the position of curator-in charge of the Renwick Gallery, in Washington, DC. We had been invited, along with a few other contemporary studio jewelry enthusiasts, by Susan Cummins to explore the possibility of developing a national organization devoted to the understanding and promotion of this developing field of American craft.
