Art Bridges Initiative

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is sharing American art from its collection with eight partner museums across Pennsylvania as part of the Art Bridges Initiative, which expands access to outstanding works of American art nationwide. Over the course of several years, this multi-institutional partnership will produce a series of collaboratively curated American art exhibitions designed to engage local communities in innovative ways.

Partner museums include:

Exhibitions are broad-ranging and include works created by some of Pennsylvania’s most acclaimed artists, including Charles Demuth, Edward Hicks, and Charles Sheeler. The partnership will culminate in exhibitions of up to twenty-five works of art drawn from the collections of all participating museums. The initiative also supports professional development exchange and opportunities for dynamic programming.
