The Fabric Workshop and Museum

The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) was founded in 1977 with a visionary purpose: to stimulate experimentation among leading contemporary artists and to share the process of creating works of art with the public. Providing studio facilities, equipment, and expert technicians, FWM originally invited artists to experiment with fabric and later with a wide range of innovative materials and media. From the outset, FWM also served as an education center for Philadelphia's youth who, as printing apprentices, learned technical and vocational skills along with approaches to creative expression. Today, FWM is recognized as an internationally acclaimed contemporary art museum, distinguished as the only institution in the United States devoted to creating work with textiles and new media in collaboration with artists from diverse artistic backgrounds—including sculpture, installation, video, painting, ceramics, and architecture.
