PMA Craft Show Kick-Off at the Convention Center

The preview party gave buyers a sneak peek at what’s for sale at this year’s show.

The 40th Annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, presented by the Museum’s Women’s Committee, kicked off their annual event Wednesday night with a preview party at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, where the show is being held through Sunday, November 13th. The money raised at the event is used to purchase works of art and craft for the permanent collections, fund conservation projects and support exhibitions and programs for the museum. The Craft Show presents the work of approximately 195 of the most dynamic craft artists in the United States and is considered one of the premier exhibitions in the field.
