Founded in 1977, The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) encourages international artists at all stages of their careers to experiment with new materials and new media in a veritable living laboratory, working with studio staff, educators, and apprentices.
Through its renowned Artist-in-Residence
Program, FWM’s collaborative process continues to build a permanent collection
of some 6,000 works of art and an archive of diverse materials that preserve and document the course of artistic production from inspiration to realization. An ambitious program of exhibitions
and publications, a dynamic website, and wide-ranging educational programming
enhance FWM's commitment to conveying a story of contemporary art that unites process with finished works of art of interest to a broad national and international audience.
