Margaret Foster Richardson's painting A Motion Picture

Join us for an exclusive curator-led tour that explores the artistic networks of women artists exhibiting, studying, and teaching at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from its founding in 1805 to the end of World War II as part of the exhibition, Women in Motion: 150 Years of Women's Artistic Networks at PAFA. This walkthrough highlights work from PAFA’s remarkable permanent collection, including many recent acquisitions, which has been lauded by The New York Times and other notable publications for its pioneering leadership in collecting art by women, and is led by Dr. Anna Marley, Vice President of Museum Research and Scholarship, Kenneth R. Woodcock Curator of Historical American Art, and Director of the Center for the Study of the American Artist.
