Communications & Social Media for the country's premier show of fine craft artists
More than 195 contemporary fine craft artists from across the U.S. will exhibit and sell their work at the 38th annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, held Nov. 6 to 9 with an opening night gala on Nov. 5. Presented annually by the Museum Women’s Committee and Craft Show Committee, the event showcases the country’s finest craft artists and attracts some 18,000 visitors to the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia over four days.
The highly competitive jury process draws artists from Maine to California, carefully selected from more than 1,000 applicants. Craft Show artists present a striking variety of museum-quality work in glass, ceramics, wood, basketry, both wearable and decorative fibers, metal, paper, leather and mixed media, as well as one-of-a-kind handmade furniture and both precious and semi-precious jewelry.
About the client:
The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show was founded in 1977 and was the first retail craft show established and organized by a volunteer committee for the benefit of a nonprofit institution. This trailblazing show has served as a prototype for successful subsequent shows in cities such as Washington, D.C., and Evanston, Ill. among others. The Show is presented each November by the Museum’s Women’s Committee and the Craft Show Committee for the benefit of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, contributing more than $10.5 million over a 37-year period.
Founded in 1883, the Philadelphia Museum of Art Women’s Committee is one of the oldest organizations of women in support of a cultural institution in the country.
