Historic Landmark Building
PAFA’s Historic Landmark Building (HLB) is considered one of the finest surviving examples of Victorian Gothic architecture in America. Built by the Philadelphia firm of Frank Furness and George Hewitt, the HLB rises 70 feet above street level, and opened to the public on April 22, 1876. The HLB houses exhibition space, as well as classroom space for the 美术学院, in addition to historic Cast Hall. HLB will be closed from January 9 through March 22, 2023 in preparation for our next exhibition, 升起的太阳: Artists in an Uncertain America.
Built in 1916, the 塞缪尔·米.V. 汉密尔顿大厦 (Hamilton) was originally home to the Hudson Motor Company. PAFA acquired the building in the early 2000s and formally renamed it in honor of board member Samuel “Sam” Hamilton (1924-1997). The 汉密尔顿大厦 is home to the 美术学院, as well as special exhibition spaces on the first, second, and basement floors.
Located between PAFA's Historic Landmark and 塞缪尔·米.V. Hamilton buildings, the plaza was constructed in 2011 and is open year-round. It features a three-part serpentine bench, 马赛克铺路石, 种植, and rotating works of emerging and established artists in an urban setting. 克拉斯奥尔登堡的李奇登 油漆火炬 (2011) is situated at its eastern end overlooking Broad Street.
梦的花园 at the Curtis Building
Hours: 周一–星期五, 7:00 AM until 6:00 PM
Designated as the City’s first “historic object” by the Philadelphia Historical Commission, artist Maxfield Parrish's (1870–1966) landmark mural 梦幻花园 (1914–1915), is a breathtaking mural not to be missed. Composed of hundreds of thousands of irreplaceable glass tesserae in more than 260 color tones, 梦的花园 was the only collaboration between Maxfield Parrish and glass master Louis Comfort Tiffany, and commissioned by Cyrus Curtis to adorn the lobby of the Curtis Publishing Company.
