The Women’s Committee’s current projects include the nationally acclaimed Philadelphia Museum of Art Contemporary Craft Show and The Philadelphia Show: Antiques, Art, Design. The Philadelphia Show is held each year in the Spring while the Craft Show is held in early November.
The 45th annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Contemporary Craft Show will run from Friday, November 5 through Sunday, November 7, 2021. A Gala Preview Night will be held on Thursday, November 4. All events will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
The Women’s Committee and the Craft Show Committee present the Craft Show each November. This premier exhibition and sale of contemporary American craft and design includes emerging artists, art schools as well as the finest craft artists in the United States. Since 2001, guest and international artists have been invited to represent their country at the Show. In 2020, the first all virtual Show was produced in response to COVID, making it possible to continue the tradition of supporting the makers as well as the museum. A portion of each year’s proceeds is dedicated to the purchase of a craft object for the museum’s permanent collection.
