Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts

In the 19th century, the Academy was the American equivalent of the best European art schools. A host of genres and mediums from the most prominent names in American art are constantly on display, with new pieces rotating their way into the collection. Some of America's best artists either taught or were students here, including Thomas Eakins and Mary Cassatt. The building itself is a work of art designed by Frank Furness, an influential 19th-century American architect.

Barnes Foundation

A working class Philadelphian himself, Dr. Albert Coombs Barnes established the foundation in 1922 to promote appreciation of the fine arts among the common man. Over the years, the Barnes Foundation has procured one of the most noteworthy collections of early French modern and post-impressionist paintings in the world. Works by artists like Renoir, Cezanne, Monet, Picasso and Rousseau are part of the collection. The collection has only toured once and then only a fraction of it was sent out. It is necessary to call ahead for a reserved admission ticket.

Gallery Joe

Gallery Joe is by no means as generic as its name might imply. Since 1994, the owners of this smallish gallery have devoted their efforts toward dealing with contemporary drawings. If you're an art lover and have an eye for colors then you will enjoy the varied display from artists. Regular exhibitions and events are not only visually appealing but also very informative in terms of contemporary schemes and forms of art.
