Current Exhibition




Philly After Dark


For generations Philadelphia had a reputation for rolling up its sidewalks at dusk. This exhibition of more than 50 illustrations demonstrates that not all citizens of the Quaker City retreated when the sun went down. For 150 years its artists, printmakers and photographers captured landmarks by moonlight and by streetlight. They also showed that on any given night plenty happened in Philly After Dark, including entertainment, commerce, tippling, crime, and disaster.
