Philadelphia Contemporary presents cross-disciplinary art that reflects the diversity and vitality of Philadelphia. We thrive through a dynamic and sustainable model of collaboration and partnership. We are developing a substantial new building as a permanent home: it will be accessible, welcoming, and surprising.
Create a globally oriented hub for contemporary art that is deeply rooted in the diverse communities of Philadelphia. Create a building that serves and delights artists, visitors, and enhances Philadelphia’s cultural ecosystem. Champion a vibrant and sustainable business model based on partnerships and collaborations. Educate and empower youth through art.
Respect and nurture art, artists, our staff, and our community; welcome and engage audiences; strive for excellence; embrace diversity.
