Many careers, of both students and faculty, have been fostered by the region’s impressive array of art schools, including Drexel University, Moore College of Art and Design, Philadelphia University, Tyler School of Art at Temple University, and the University of the Arts. Major exhibitions of contemporary crafts that further promoted the movement were held in Philadelphia during the late 1960s and early 1970s, a role now filled in large part by
the Craft Show.
