The Philadelphia Show

In collaboration with the museum, The Women’s Committee is proud to continue the tradition of The Philadelphia Show: Antiques, Art, Design.  Founded in 1962 as the University Hospital Antiques Show, the show benefited and was organized by Penn Medicine for 55 years.  In 2018 the Philadelphia Museum of Art partnered with The Women’s Committee to produce the show.  Proceeds benefit the museum’s Division of Education and Public Programs.

The Philadelphia Show 2020 will be held from April 24th through the 26th in The Navy Yard with the Gala Preview Party on April 23rd.  For more information and tickets, please refer to the website www.thephiladelphiashow.com
