Smithsonian Showcases Talents of US Artisans

The annual Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington, D.C. is the most prestigious show of its kind in the U.S. -- and one of the most difficult for artists to get into. This year, more than 120 craft artists working in 12 different media -- from furniture to glass and wearable art -- displayed their work in the historic National Building Museum.
