Wearable Art

Craft2Wear returns October 20 to 22

Visitors to the Smithsonian Craft2Wear show will be able to peruse—and purchase—one-of-a-kind creations from a curated collection of contemporary wearable craft and design. Seventy booths will occupy the National Building Museum, proffering works by a host of American makers; wares run the gamut from jewelry and leather to clothing, accessories and decorative fiber.

The 2022 show—the first since 2019—takes place October 21 and 22, with a preview benefit the evening of October 20 when guests can shop, meet the artists and enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres. This year’s event honors Judy Lynn Prince, the philanthropist and past president of the Smithsonian Women’s Committee who founded Craft2Wear in 2005 and passed away in 2021.

Proceeds of the event support education, research and conservation grants to the Smithsonian’s research centers, museums and the National Zoo.
