Following a proclamation event announcing November as CraftMONTH in Philadelphia, CraftNOW will host its annual kickoff in conjunction with the artist reception for Crafting Contexts, a juried exhibition in partnership with Art in City Hall and Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, Creative Philadelphia.
Crafting Contexts presents craft projects serving as a critical tool to examine culture, immigration, the environment, current events or institutional traditions. Crafting Contexts has been juried by artist Eiko Fan and Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Living Artists Coordinator Charlotte Lowery.
CraftNOW activates the City in conjunction with the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show throughout the month of November. Join us as we examine the Fluid Boundaries of contemporary craft practices and intersections with other disciplines including the fine arts, design, and making. Mark you calendar for more lectures, hands-on activities and special events for 2017.
