Craft Organization Development Association Award for
Leadership, Creative Thinking and Outstanding Service

The Craft Organization Development Association Award for Leadership, Creative Thinking and Outstanding Service was presented to Robyn and John Horn who have had a significant impact on the crafts field. 

For over twenty five years, Robyn and John Horn have built a substantial collection of contemporary crafts in their home just outside of Little Rock, AR. Both are recognized as national leaders in the promotion and support of craft across a range of media. Their creative nature - Robyn, a wood sculptor whose work is displayed in museums across the country, and John, a letterpress printer who teaches at Penland School of Crafts in Penland, NC – became the driving force in building a collection to serve both artists and the community. John and Robyn are founding members of the Collectors of Wood Art, an initiative which strives to promote the value of woodworking as an art form. In 2007 the couple was selected for McColl Award from the Founder’s Circle from the Mint Museum of Craft + Design in Charlotte, NC; additionally, Robyn received the Honorary Lifetime Membership Award from the American Association of Woodturners. The Horns regularly offer their home for fund raising events benefiting the Arkansas Arts Center where Robyn serves on its Foundation Board. She also serves on Advisory Committees for the Wharton Esherick Museum in Paoli, PA and the San Francisco Museum of Craft + Design.
