While Art lounges in a fainting couch, twirling its monocle and sucking down a dry martini, Craft bumbles its way through Applebee’s wearing culottes and a fanny pack. Art only watches documentaries and foreign films. Craft is a big Will Ferrell fan. That’s what some people would have you believe, anyway. The truth about the distinction between Art and Craft is a great deal more complicated, definitely less cliché, and entirely subjective anyway. Arts Editor Erin Messer makes her spring arts debut by exploring the relationship between art and craft, with a little help in the form of extensive calendar listings from Calendar Editor Trever Dias, who also makes his spring arts debut.
