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. VOA’s Julie Taboh spoke with one of the artists, Bob McNally, who considers himself both an artist and a musician. He invented the instrument he calls a Strumstick.
