All of the museum quality work is for sale and each artist receives 100% of their sale proceeds.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is the Show’s sole beneficiary. When you purchase a ticket to the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show or become a sponsor of the Show, you are directly supporting the work of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
