2024 Smithsonian Craft2Wear Show

LATE DEADLINE: May 15, 2024 (ONLINE)
DEADLINE: April 30, 2024 (ONLINE)


2024 Smithsonian Craft2Wear Show
National Building Museum

Washington DC
September 27 - 29, 2024

The 2024 Smithsonian Craft2Wear Show is an exhibition and sale of wearable contemporary American craft and design held annually in Washington DC at the National Building Museum. Unlike the juried Smithsonian Craft Show presented each Spring, Craft2Wear artists will be selected by members of the Smithsonian Women’s Committee (SWC), which produces the Craft2Wear show.

ELIGIBILITY
The Smithsonian Craft2Wear Show is committed to presenting thoughtful, original, and skilled wearable American craft and design. The Show is looking for artists who produce one-of-a-kind or limited edition items that have been conceived and perfected by the artist and created in the artist’s studio.  All work submitted to the Smithsonian Craft2Wear Show must be created and made in the United States.

The SWC is seeking a full range of wearables and accessories.

Wearable Art - Artwork that is predominately clothing made from any materials.
Wearable Accessories - Artwork which is predominately scarves, shawls, shoes, handbags, belts, socks, gloves and/or hats made from any materials.
Jewelry - Artwork, which is jewelry, tie tacks, and/or cufflinks made from any materials.

The Smithsonian Craft2Wear Show encourages artists to continue to grow and stretch the limits of their work.  We recognize that new technologies are increasingly helpful in this process, so it is acceptable to submit work in which CAD/CAM and other industrial techniques such as 3-D printing tools are used in the creative process.

The use of repurposed materials, including found objects and sustainable practices, should be included in the Artist’s Statement, if applicable.

Only U.S. residents who make their work in the U.S. are eligible to apply.


Application Fee: $25.00 + Late Fee: $10.00

Mosesian Center for the Arts

Watertown, MA
May 17, 2024 – June 21, 2024


The Mosesian Center for the Arts invites artists to submit work inspired by literature, the written word, folk tales, and tales of all kinds from fairy tales to narratives that are autobiographical or speak of the human condition. Visual arts have been inspired by the written word since antiquity. There are strong connections between literature and visual arts. Words paint pictures and artists interpret and /or are influenced by stories. The influence goes both ways, as stories are influenced by images as well. Artists working in all media are encouraged to submit artwork that combines text and image or interprets stories ranging from well-known literary pieces to personal writings.

Poetry, novels, songs are often enhanced by images. Children books are made more vivid when accompanied by pictures. Album covers and music videos come to life when combined with visuals. Art works such as painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, comic books, video, film, and sculpture that emphasize storytelling, or are influenced by the written word would be considered. Artwork, whether depicting a well know work of literature, mythology, or more conceptual interpretation of the connections between words and images are also encouraged.

Eligibility: All artists regardless of location are welcome to apply, including international artists.

Submission Fee: $10 per submission. Limit 5 submissions per artist.
