The Smithsonian Women’s Committee (SWC) annually produces the Smithsonian Craft Show to celebrate the best in American craft and design. This 42nd show, themed Creating Joy, highlights artisans from throughout the US. Our Honorary Chair is Meroë Park, Deputy Secretary and Chief Operating Officer of the Smithsonian Institution. Event proceeds make possible grants from the SWC to the the Smithsonian museums, galleries, research facilities and The National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute for projects that could otherwise not take place.
