In the News | The PAFA Museum Offers an Enlightening Date Spot for Art Lovers in the Community

"Visiting a museum is an intellectually stimulating way to mix up a date night, and PAFA provides a wonderfully rich environment for people of all ages and backgrounds," Amber Brooks writes.

"PAFA has stood the test of time (over 215 years and counting!) because it brings diverse perspectives under one roof and creates common ground in the art community."

“We’re the oldest art museum and college in the country,” said Ryan Burton-Romero, Senior Vice President at PAFA. “We have a long history and tradition. One of the largest collections of American artwork is housed right here in PAFA. We’ve been educating art students for over 200 years, which is quite amazing.”
