Lincoln Square, a mixed use multi-family project completed in 2018, pays homage not only to Abraham Lincoln and the adjacent train shed that was the site of the 16th President’s historically significant funeral path in April 1865, but also to the burgeoning neighborhood at the intersection of Broad and Washington. The building’s Amenity space that will host the CraftNow Annual Gala showcases the talent of Philadelphia’s creative community of makers under the design direction of Eileen Tognini, Eileen Tognini Design.


Support provided by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund


CraftNOW Philadelphia spotlights the artists and institutions that make up Philadelphia’s thriving craft community through this online auction.
