There is a long standing tradition of makers and making that draws from the
Arts and Crafts movement
Bauhaus School of Design
I have not used the terms Art, Artist, Craft, Craftsman, as MakeICT gallery will draw from the above traditions for guidance.

The MakeICT Gallery is the interface between MakeICT and the Wichita Community, the fundamental goal is to show what Makers at MakeICT can create.
