Center for American Art

Established in 2002, the Center for American Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art encourages and facilitates the study of the nation’s artistic heritage from its beginnings to the present day. In partnership with universities, museums, and libraries in the greater Philadelphia area, we support public programs, publications, and exhibitions as well as offer project grants, fellowships, and research resources intended to enhance the discourse on American art with a special emphasis on the Philadelphia region.

With the planned completion of the Museum’s new American galleries in 2020, the Center will play a leading role in interpreting its collection in new and innovative ways.
