Dedicated to advancing the Smithsonian's mission to increase and diffuse knowledge. Founded in 1966. The Smithsonian Women’s Committee celebrates fine American crafts through two signature events: the Smithsonian Craft Show and Craft2Wear. From the funds raised at these shows, and through endowments, the Committee awards grants throughout the Smithsonian. Find out more about the Smithsonian Women’s Committee at swcmembers.si.edu.
