Society for Contemporary Craft

Engaging the public in creative experiences through Contemporary Craft Tax ID 25-1375646


Society for Contemporary Craft is a visual arts organization that presents the work of regional, national and international contemporary artists working in craft media (clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood and found objects), and as such is one of only a few organizations in the United States dedicated to this art form.  Founded in 1971 by Elizabeth Rockwell Raphael, SCC’s mission is to engage the public in creative experiences through contemporary craft. SCC's main exhibition gallery, education center and store has been located in the Produce Terminal Building on Smallman Street in the historic Strip District of Pittsburgh since 1986.  Exhibitions and informal, hands-on art activities are always free to the public.
