Who we are
CraftNOW Philadelphia unites the leading institutions, artists and patrons of Philadelphia’s craft community to celebrate the city’s rich legacy of craft, its internationally-recognized contemporary craft scene, and its important role as an incubator for arts based in wood, clay, fiber, metal and glass.
In the Spotlight
CraftNOW activates the city in conjunction with the Philadelphia Museum of Art Contemporary Craft Show throughout the month of November. In 2018, CraftNOW presents the theme Making a Difference to visitors as a means of discovering how craft promotes positive change, social cohesion and meaningful dialogue. More information regarding our itinerary of events is available throughout our site.
