The 2025 Smithsonian Craft Show will feature America's finest artisans and celebrate their vision of what might be. It is a juried exhibition and sale of contemporary craft and design held annually in Washington DC. Three expert jurors, newly selected each year, choose 120 artists from a large pool of applicants. 

Previous exhibitors must re-apply each year.  No one is grandfathered into the show.  There is no quota for any category of Craft Art.  Artists are selected based on the originality, artistic conception, beauty, and quality of their work. The show is produced by the Smithsonian Women's Committee. Proceeds from the show fund grants that benefit the Smithsonian's education, outreach, conservation, and research programs.

The Smithsonian Craft Show is produced by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee (SWC) as a fund-raising event for the Smithsonian Institution. Since its inception, SWC has awarded more than 14 MILLION dollars in grants to Smithsonian organizations throughout the world.
