This year proceeds from the Philadelphia Show support the Division of Learning and Engagement at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

The mission of the Philadelphia Museum of Art is to bring the visual arts to diverse audiences as a source of delight, illumination and lifelong learning.   Education is at the heart of this mission. Through a wide range of arts education programs and community engagement and access initiatives, we connect people with art and inspire connection, creativity, critical thinking and self-expression.

Our programs engage diverse audiences of all ages and abilities from our youngest learners to families, to teens and adults.   We are committed to accessibility and breaking down barriers, so we offer many of our programs free-of-charge or at discounted rates.  School tours are free for all School District of Philadelphia students and teachers and our monthly “Pay What You Wish Family Festivals” offer families low-cost opportunities to engage in art making, gallery tours, and musical and dance performances.   We also distribute 13,000 Free Family passes and 5,000 Art Kits each summer throughout the Free Libraries and Parks and Rec Centers throughout the city.
