Overview

At once a celebrated museum and a prolific learning institution, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) has served as one of Philadelphia’s most important artistic hubs since 1805.

The permanent collection spans a range of media, including paintings, sculpture and works on paper, which together tell the story of American art in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The school counts visionaries like Maxfield Parrish, Mary Cassatt and David Lynch among its most distinguished alumni.
