We are thrilled to welcome you to the Museum for Art in Wood! Access to our exhibitions and permanent collection is free of charge to all visitors.

The ITE fellows’ exhibition was a great success with many people attending and lots of good energy, and wonderful work filling the space. Albert LeCoff spoke to attendees and patrons about the value of the ITE program in supporting wood workers and artists with the 9-week fellowship. The positive results were evident in the excellent variety of work exhibited. Many patrons, board members, friends and family showed their support for the artists by attending the exhibition as well as the fantastic dinner afterwards at Paradisio Italian restaurant in South Philadelphia.
