The Philadelphia Show features a loan exhibit every year, a tradition since the Show’s founding in 1962. The curated, museum-quality loan exhibit changes with each Show and allows visitors a closer look at specific genre of antiques.

This year’s loan exhibition “Zero to Sixty” celebrates The Philadelphia Show’s 60th anniversary by highlighting loan exhibits throughout the years.

The loan exhibit is curated by Alexandra Kirtley, the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Montgomery-Garvan Curator of American Decorative Arts and long time supporter of the show, Joan Johnson.
