Cultures of Making Exhibitions
Exhibition spaces throughout Philadelphia present the most honored and innovative artists working today in wood, clay, fiber, metal, and glass. For five years, CraftNOW has highlighted exhibits and events to correspond with the Philadelphia Museum of Art Contemporary Craft Show in November showcasing Philadelphia as a destination for craft and making.
In 2020, the exhibition venues listed here have been in varying stages of scheduling due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Click below to discover how CraftNOW partners are continuing to adapt and remain dedicated to their programming.
