Q & A - Meet Robin Blumenfeld Switzenbaum - 2020 Show Chair for the 44th Annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

Being the Show Chair of an event as large as the PMA Craft Show is a big job. The Show Chair assists the event director, oversees the 100 member Craft Show committee, and acts as ambassador and liaison for the press, the preview party, sponsors, patrons, and the artists. We are happy to introduce this year’s Chair, Robin Blumenfeld Switzenbaum. Robin has been on the Craft Show Committee since 2008, and originally began attending the Show with her mother in 1977. She grew up by the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and the museum was in her backyard.

Ceramics and Bryan Hopkins – A Passion for Craft

“I make porcelain vessels for everyday use that are both sculptural and utilitarian. I’m influenced by physically engaging textures like old barn wood or industrial flooring, and I enjoy applying common everyday materials to porcelain which is typically seen as precious.” ~ Bryan Hopkins

The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show has over a dozen different categories of fine craft represented among its 195 exhibitors. Beginning with ceramics, we’ll be highlighting each category on our blog throughout the season leading to the Show in November.
