Points of View Speaker Series: Pioneering Women - Arts Leadership in Turn of the Century Philadelphia

Saturday, February 10th, 2018
Hamilton Auditorium, Historic Landmark Building
$15 General Admission / Free to PAFA members

The turn of the 19th to 20th century saw Philadelphia’s women taking a decisive role in the leadership of their city. In the art world, they helped found new schools and educational organizations, playing prominent roles at PAFA, Drexel University and Moore College of Art and Design, and agitated more broadly as individuals for leadership roles in the wider Philadelphia community. Anna Marley, Curator of Historical American Art at PAFA and Lily Milroy, Professor at Drexel University, use art as a starting point to discuss the institutions, individuals and administrators that resulted from this historic moment in Philadelphia’s development.

This talk is offered in conjunction with the exhibition Graphic Women.
