Reviews

"Churning out "great art" was not, finally, the school's main contribution. What was created during those short, sweet summers had more to do with the very conditions of creativity. It was something more mercurial and harder to pin down but -- on all the evidence presented by this show and its excellent catalogue -- very, very enviable."--The Wall Street Journal
"The authors, who are both curators of American art, deliver the only complete retrospective of Haystack. No other scholarly literature exists on Haystack's foundational years or on the connection of the artists that were essential to the early leadership of the school. This publication is recommended for all academic art libraries and essential for any school with a decorative arts or a master of arts program."--ARLIS/NA Reviews
