Since its opening in October 2016, the Broad Street Studio (BSS) is a permanent space dedicated to demonstrating the creative process that happens every day in studios and classrooms at PAFA, putting our dual mission as both a museum and school of the fine arts on dramatic display.

This public space—located in the Samuel M.V. Hamilton building, at the corner of North Broad Street and Lenfest Plaza—changes every few weeks with new projects from PAFA students and classes alike.

The space serves as a rewarding and useful way for students to take a more experimental and playful approach to their work, outside of the unavoidable pressures that are part-and-parcel with the classroom experience.
