Since its founding in 1915, the PAA has presented the work of artists and designers working in a wide variety of media, from ceramics and jewelry to textiles and sculpture. Each year we present up to twelve new exhibitions featuring the work of emerging and established artists. Rather than understanding “craft” as a class of objects, the PAA encourages visitors to consider “craft” as a verb. This broader definition means that our exhibitions encompass a range of topics and types of work, from useful and decorative objects to sculpture and installations. Our diverse program of exhibitions, inspired by our setting in a masterfully crafted domestic space, can thus be communicated to visitors in engaging and unexpected ways.

Philadelphia Art Alliance provides the perfect setting for groups to experience craft and design.   Within the halls of our 100 year old home, teachers and professors have plenty of space to discuss the work with their students.

We also provide touring services, where our curator can guide you through Wetherill Mansion and share with you not only fascinating knowledge about the artwork, but the building itself.

MGA Partners: People Process Place

Apr 12, 2015 to Apr 26, 2015

MGA Partners: People Process Place

Apr 12, 2015 to Apr 26, 2015


People Process Place celebrates the collaboration of designers, university leaders, housing officers, fabricators, and builders, in the creation of a new signature high rise student residence on the North Broad Street skyline. Morgan Hall contributes to the ongoing transformation of Temple University into a community-engaged, pedestrian-oriented, academic and cultural destination in Philadelphia. The project encompasses a full city block on the southern edge of Temple’s campus and is both the announcement of the institution along the approach from Center City, as well as the culmination of Liacouras Walk, which connects the campus.

A new publication People Process Place, accompanies the exhibit and will be available gratis for reception and exhibit guests. The Album honors the hundreds of people that contributed to the creation of this new place in the City.

MGA Partners is a nationally recognized architecture firm based in Philadelphia.  Established in 1958 as Mitchell/Giurgola Architects, the firm reorganized in 1990 and continues to be recognized for design excellence with Senior Partners Daniel Kelley FAIA, Robert Shuman AIA, and Mary Keefe.  In 2014, the partnership expanded to include Amy Stein AIA, Katie Broh AIA and Christine Marsal .  Evolving from the commitment to a more humanistic and urbane modernism as practiced by the firm's predecessors, MGA Partners views architecture in the context of art and craft, realizing aspirations for a better life and public responsibility through its plans and buildings.
