Founded in 1962 as the University Hospital Antiques Show, the show benefited and was organized by Penn Medicine until 2018. In 2018 the Philadelphia Museum of Art, with The Women's Committee and the many volunteers that served the show for years took over the responsibility of planning the show. Proceeds benefit the museum’s Division of Digital Resources and Content Strategy.

This year proceeds from the Philadelphia Show support the Division of Digital Resources and Content Strategy at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Division of Digital Resources and Content Strategy encompasses the work of our staff in interactive technology, website, library and archives, marketing and communications, editorial and graphic design, and publishing, as well as the creation of a new Content Department. Leading a museum-wide shift in why and how we share digital content, the Division seeks to help virtual visitors from our local community and around the world find personal relevance and create new meaning through the exploration of rich and integrated collections information, museum programming, and original research. They coordinate our website, digital and print communication platforms, and social media presence, with a particular emphasis on leveraging research and programming related to the collection.
