The Fabric Workshop and Museum


The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) is an internationally-acclaimed contemporary art space devoted both to the creation and presentation of innovative works of art. Through its renowned Artist-in-Residence (AIR) Program, FWM collaborates with mid-career and established artists to expand their practices while documenting the course of artistic production from inspiration to realization. Research and fabrication occur on-site in studios that are open to the public, inviting visitors to discover more of the artistic process as well as selected materials from an archive of past projects. The AIR Program—the creative nucleus of FWM—serves as the genesis for the Museum’s groundbreaking exhibition program, its impact furthered by related opportunities for local students and emerging artists. Apprenticeships for high school, college and post-graduate students are bolstered by public programming for all ages, providing technical skills as well as new horizons for creative expression.
