The Philadelphia Art Alliance at The University of the Arts: Uniting Two Legacies



featuredThe Philadelphia Art Alliance at The University of the Arts: Uniting Two Legacies


The University of the Arts and the Philadelphia Art Alliance have been vital institutions within the City’s cultural community for over a century. Nurturing and supporting the arts has been the cornerstone of both organizations, whether through the education of artists themselves or through cultivating audiences who have grown to appreciate them. Within the history of each institution, a multidisciplinary focus has made them unique cultural establishments in Philadelphia, providing a place for students, professional artists, and arts aficionados to explore and understand all of the disciplines under a single umbrella.


Uniting Two Legacies includes a brief look at the founding and history of the institutions, and their subsequent evolution; it also provides a closer examination of specific events and notable exhibitions, highlighting the strengths of each institution. Given the multidisciplinary nature of both organizations, the exhibition equally explores all disciplines over the course of the last century, including the visual arts, crafts, design, music, dance, and theater.



The University of the Arts is committed to inspiring, educating, and preparing innovative artists and creative leaders for the arts of the twenty-first century.


Uniting two century-long legacies, The Philadelphia Art Alliance at The University of the Arts is a center that advances the work of makers, performers, and practitioners. With a deep-rooted understanding of the arts as interrelated allies, we seek new perspectives and generate experiences that investigate experimental impulses. Our fluid approach to the arts reflects our learning environment and cultivates inventiveness, originality, and imaginative expression.
