Renwick Gallery adds work by Norm Sartorius
At the Smithsonian Craft Show in 2012 Nicholas Bell, the Fleur and Charles Bresler Curator of American Craft and Decorative Arts admired a major piece that Norm had on display. When he told Norm that while he had the interest to acquire the piece he lacked the funds for its acquisition. Subsequently a group of collectors banded together to make the addition of this wonderful piece to the Renwick permanent collection a reality.
Our collective thanks to Fleur Bresler, Bruce and Eleanor Heister, Pat McCauley, James L. Pavitt/Carolyn K. Stettner and Ken Spitzbard for their generous contribution to the Renwick.
