The Philadelphia Show

This year's The Philadelphia Show – one of the nation's leading art and design fairs – is taking place at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from April 28 - April 30.

This year is the fair's 61st edition and will feature more than forty exhibitors in the US, specializing in fine art, collectible design and antiques.

For the second time since its inception, The Philadelphia Show will take place on the grounds of the Philadelphia Museum of Art on the institution’s East Terrace. 

With its core rooted in American art, the Show is further bolstered by international influences, with many galleries also showcasing important European and Asian works, and is committed to spotlighting galleries championing works by underrepresented artists.
