CraftNOW Presents Craft Works Symposium
Join CraftNOW Philadelphia for its free annual symposium, a signature CraftMONTH event where scholars, curators, and artists highlight current topics in contemporary craft. Under the theme of Craft Works, the symposium examines the work of making things, craft practice as labor, craft’s relationship to the needs of working people, and the power of craft to enact transformative work through communities. Hear lectures discussing craft’s role in building community, participate in a presentation highlighting three major Korean art shows in Philadelphia, and shorter talks from emerging scholars. The Craft Works Symposium pays tribute to gallerists Ruth and Rick Snyderman for their important contributions to the Philadelphia craft community and their celebrated Snyderman-Works Galleries. The symposium is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Philadelphia Cultural Fund, Rago Auctions, and many other dedicated members of the community.
