Message from Smithsonian Secretary Lonnie G. Bunch III

It is my honor to welcome you to the 39th annual Smithsonian Craft Show, a showcase of American design that honors the gifted artists whose talent enriches us all. Produced by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee, the Craft Show supports projects throughout the Institution, helping us increase our reach, relevance, and impact. To date, our craft shows have enabled the Smithsonian Women’s Committee to grant nearly $13 million to the Institution’s outreach, education, and research programs. On behalf of the entire Smithsonian community, I offer my heartfelt thanks to the Smithsonian Women’s Committee for their outstanding work year-round, culminating with this special event.
