For over 40 years, FWM has assembled Artist Boxes containing process materials – sketches, color swatches, fabric samples, notes and prototypes – that document the creative process of every Artist-in-Residence who has collaborated with FWM. Taking inspiration from this unique collection, we invite you to be our Families-in-Residence for the afternoon and explore your own creativity through a series of hands-on activities. Using an array of materials, children and adults will work together to assemble their very own “Family Portrait Box.” Frosted face cookies will be served with a rainbow selection of juice. All materials will be provided. Families are encouraged to bring items to personalize their boxes.

Major support for Process and Practice: 40 Years of Experimentation is provided by the Coby Foundation, Ltd., with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Joy of Giving Something, Inc., the Lenore G. Tawney Foundation, and the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.

Major support of FWM is provided by the Marion Boulton “Kippy” Stroud Foundation. FWM receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additional support is provided by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund, Agnes Gund, and the Board of Directors and Members of The Fabric Workshop and Museum.
