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 2019, CraftNOW presents the theme Craft Capital to visitors as a means of discovering makers and institutions serving as anchors for community and generators of inherent value. More information regarding our itinerary of events will become available throughout our site.
