Philadelphia’s Thriving Art Scene
Did you know that over 300,000 works of thriving art call the Philadelphia Museum of Art home? Museums and galleries large and small decorate the City of Brotherly Love, which is further establishing itself as the art hub of the east coast!
Touted as the most artistic mile in the nation, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway offers an extraordinary collection of public art, gardens, fountains, monuments, and more! Beyond museums, Philadelphia offers impressive theatre options including The Walnut Street Theater, Merriam Theater, and the Kimmel Center.
It’s no surprise that Philadelphia offers so many extraordinary art attractions, as the city is home to some of the finest art schools. Talented new artists keep the art scene fresh and alive, emerging from schools such as the University of the Arts, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Moore College of Art & Design, and the Art Institute of Philadelphia. Whew! Be sure to check out each school’s upcoming exhibitions and events.
