Museum Announces Lively Fall Schedule of Public Programs


Featuring works from the Museum’s vast permanent collection and incorporating themes from constantly changing special exhibitions, the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Division of Education produces dozens of programs each season. The Education department encourages adults and children of all ages to engage and interact with the visual arts through family celebrations of international cultures, lectures by noted artists and scholars (including artist Jeff Wall and NPR host Susan Stamberg), and a slew of music, dance, and theatrical performances in the galleries. Other highlights include the Film@Perelman series, pairing short films in quirky and unexpected ways, a new contemporary-music series, and various lectures and programs highlighting the Armenian artist Arshile Gorky. The Education department will also continue to offer ongoing favorites, such as the 45-minute “Spotlight Talks” and twice-monthly family-friendly “Drawing Together” in the galleries, as well as many diverse options for guided and self-guided tours.
