Upcoming Exhibition




The Federal Presence in Philadelphia


The Athenaeum will host an exhibition of sketches, watercolors, prints, architectural drawings and photographs that document two hundred years of Philadelphia buildings that were commissioned by the Federal Government as well as those that housed federal offices. From Independence Square to custom houses, post offices and military installations, this show will reveal the surprising and lasting architectural imprint the Federal Government has made on the City of Brotherly Love.

 Exhibition Dates: January 28-April 26, 2019

Free Admission
