The Philadelphia Antiques & Art Show features a Loan Exhibit every year, a tradition since the Show’s founding in 1962. The curated, museum-quality Loan Exhibit changes with each Show and allows visitors a closer look at a specific genre of antiques.


Philadelphia Collects Philadelphia

Each year, the Philadelphia Museum of Art adds works of art to its collections through gifts and bequests from generous collectors as well as purchases from dealers and auction houses. The works span the many centuries and hail from cultures around the world as well as from Philadelphia. This exhibition features a selection of works of art made in Philadelphia–during its stately past through to its vibrant present–that were recently acquired by the PMA.
