Mission
The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts is a recognized world leader for American fine arts education, which, bringing together artists and the public, integrates a world-class collection of American art, major exhibitions, and exceptional teaching programs.

About PAFA
Founded in 1805, PAFA is America’s first school of fine arts and museum. Over the past two centuries, PAFA has assembled what scholars and collectors describe as one of the three finest collections of American art in the world, from colonial masters like John Singleton Copley and Benjamin West, to major contemporary artists such as Red Grooms and Faith Ringgold.

Few museums are housed in their own work of art, but PAFA’s Historic Landmark Building is considered one of America’s finest surviving examples of Victorian Gothic architecture. Opened in 1876, this Victorian treasure was designed by the illustrious Philadelphia firm of Frank Furness and George Hewitt.

Along with gallery tours for museum visitors and school groups, PAFA is devoted to stimulating program of educational events that are central to its core mission. From lectures by visiting artists and free weekly “Art at Lunch” lectures to its Annual Wine Auction, PAFA offers visitors some of Philadelphia’s most distinctive and unique cultural opportunities.
