“Being asked to jury an exhibition like the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show is an incredible honor and a role that I view with deference. It was a privilege to be at the jurying table, to peer into the state of craft in 2020 and to help select the artists, designers, and thinkers who will exhibit on the final stage.” ~ Juror Sarah Darro
It takes a lot of people power to produce an event like the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, and each year there is a “Show Chairperson” in addition to the event director, support staff, and volunteers. We thought it would be nice to introduce our 2019 Show Chair, Anja Levitties. Anja has served on the Craft Show Committee for six years and has been a volunteer at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in various capacities for the past 25 years.
