The Fabric Workshop and Museum
The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) addresses contemporary art from conception through production, presentation, education, publication and preservation. Its mission includes: Production of Innovative Works through Collaboration. The FWM commissions new and innovative works by regional, national and international contemporary artists using the materials, techniques, and concepts of fabric and other new materials in exploratory ways. To that end, the FWM supports this artistic experimentation by providing fees and materials to artists, and employing its facilities and staff with flexibility to address the creative needs of the artist-in-residence.
