About the Show:
The Smithsonian Craft Show is a juried exhibition and sale of contemporary American crafts and design held annually in Washington DC. Three jurors, who are experts in the field and newly selected each year, choose 120 artists from a large pool of applicants. Previous exhibitors must re-apply each year. No one is grandfathered into the show. There is no quota for any category of Craft Art. Artists are selected based on the originality, artistic conception, beauty, and quality
of their work. The show is produced by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee. Proceeds from the Show fund grants that benefit the Smithsonian’s education, outreach, conservation, and research programs.
