PAFA In Philly

Explore the city with our self-guided walking tour


Did you know City Hall and its famous William Penn statue, along with 250 other pieces in the building, was designed by PAFA alumnus Alexander Milne Calder?

Work from artists educated at PAFA can be seen at museums across the globe but you don’t need to visit far-flung museums to see wonderful works of art.

Spend an afternoon exploring the city and learn about the public art pieces from the PAFA community which beautify and enrich our blocks.

PAFA in Philly is a free art experience. Lace up your walking shoes and use our map to visit public art created by PAFA artists.
