WHYY | PAFA Debuts 3 New Exhibits
WHYY's Tonya Pendleton previews the reopening of PAFA's museum:
The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts debuts three exhibits this week, but one is of particular interest to those who appreciate the work of female artists. Taking Space: Contemporary Women Artists and the Politics of Scale opens Thursday, the day the academy reopens to the public after a COVID-mandated citywide museum shutdown. The exhibit celebrates last year’s 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, and includes the work of more than 50 female artists from varying disciplines. Also opening: Only Tony: Portraits by Gilbert Lewis and Roll, Press Pull: Contemporary Works from the Brandywine Workshop and Archives.
