Craft NOW Philadelphia

December 2, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - January 28, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Craft NOW Philadelphia was launched in 2015 by a consortium of two dozen individuals, galleries, museums, universities, retailers and civic organizations whose mission is to promote Philadelphia as a national center of craft and making. Craft NOW serves as a citywide platform that celebrates Philadelphia’s unparalleled craft and artisanal legacy, showcases the area’s many outstanding craft artists, galleries and other institutions, and highlights the City’s continuing role in defining the future of craft and making. Each year Craft NOW promotes and/or sponsors a series of exhibitions, public demonstrations, and educational programs occurring concurrently with the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Contemporary Craft Show in November. These cultural experiences are designed to animate the City, grow the local creative economy, and offer opportunities for the public to engage directly with the art of craft.
