Painted Bride Art Center

Building on a 53-year legacy, the Painted Bride brings together artists, audiences and communities to push the boundaries of how we create and experience art. Since our 1969 founding as part of the Alternative Space movement, we have focused on supporting Black and Brown artists, LGBTQ+, women, disabled and other intentionally oppressed and overlooked communities. We believe that our work is to support marginalized Philadelphia artists and communities to create, express, and influence how our neighborhoods and our city will evolve. We work with artists who are generous, open and collaborative, and committed to building relationships with audiences.
