Philadelphia Contemporary (PC) offers a new model for a contemporary art space that is accessible and engaging to surrounding neighborhoods, the city, and national and international cultural communities and calls for new modes of engagement from social gatherings to experimental projects with young artists, to world-class exhibitions. Sited in West Philadelphia at a threshold between Drexel University and the neighborhoods of Mantua and Powelton Village, the site is part of a master plan redevelopment that prioritizes buildings for the arts and education within a new open space park plan.
