Wayne Art Center is honored to be involved with Craft NOW Philadelphia. Craft NOW Philadelphia unites the leading institutions and artists of Philadelphia’s craft community in a celebration of 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. Through both creating and spotlighting events during the week of the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, Craft NOW invites locals and visitors alike to explore Philadelphia’s innovations in the world of the handmade.
The Preview Party opening of Craft Forms 2016 will also be the culminating event of the 2016 Craft NOW series. The evening will celebrate the ways in which craft continues to grow and develop through the 21st century while honoring its roots in tradition.
