Join Lori Waselchuk, PAFA's Assistant Director of Public Programs, as she guides you through galleries showcasing the most iconic works in PAFA's collection. Making American Artists presents over one hundred of the most acclaimed and recognizable works of American art, which have played a demonstrable role in shaping conversations about the nation’s history and identity. The exhibition offers new narratives of the history of American art, embracing stories about women artists, LGBTQ+ artists, and artists of color within a visual and thematic structure that also features works traditionally associated with the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. 

Registration includes the entrance fee to PAFA's Museum.
