ABOUT US

Arizona Designer Craft & Art is an incorporated, member-owned and operated 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Board members are elected from the membership.

HISTORY

AZDCA was originally organized as Arizona Designer Craftsmen in June of 1959 in Sedona for and by a group of individual craftsmen. Vanderbilt Webb, Chairman of the Board of the American Crafts Council, came to Arizona to help organize the group. Some of the craftsmen attending that first meeting were Ben Goo, Maurice Grossman, Charles Loloma, Lloyd Kiva, Mary Pendleton, Berta Wright, Don Schaumburg, Adrian Shaw, Elsie and Ray Graves, Margaret Graves and Bertha Wunderlich.

 

In July of 2020, with membership input, the Board voted to evolve into Arizona Designer Craft & Art,

to better represent our membership and our mission.
