The 2018 Smithsonian Craft Show is coming, and this is an event you surely won’t want to miss. Artists from all over the country will come to display their work in one of the most prestigious craft shows in the country. If you are looking for a way to incorporate more culture into your life, this is the way to do it. Check out the details below so you can make plans to attend.
When and Where
The 2018 Smithsonian Craft Show will take place at the National Building Museum daily from April 26 through April 29. The show will be open all day, so no matter what your schedule looks like, you should get a chance to see it. There is a lot to check out nearby, such as shops, restaurants, and more, so budget some extra time if you would like to wander around downtown while you’re in the area.
What to Expect
The Craft Show co-chairs have selected a full 120 artists to display their art, so you’ll see tons of crafts and pieces of art when you visit. These artists come from a total of 33 different states and present 12 different types of media. You’ll find everything from wood to paper to wearable art on display. It’s unusual to see so many different types of art in one place, so if you want to see something new and unique, this is the place to be.

Supporting Young Artists and Designers
The Smithsonian Craft Show is also doing its part to support young artists and designers: It has provided a booth for the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) of Savannah, Georgia. There, students will be able to display and even sell their art, giving them an incredible opportunity on the national stage. If you want to support young artists, make sure you check out the SCAD booth and consider purchasing something. The best way to keep art alive is to encourage younger generations to explore art and all it offers.
