Poet and the Bench Interview


Conversations with an Artist: Adele Crawford

We met Adele at the de Young Museum when she was an artist in residence in 2014. We were captivated by her thoughtful, reflective process and her use of old materials—photographs, books, postcards—which she alters to reconfigure them and activate a new story. We also had the most stimulating conversations with her, inspiring us to return more than once. A friendship developed and when we were opening Poet and/the Bench, we knew we wanted Adele to be part of our journey.
