Art at Park Towne

Park Towne Place is pleased to provide a robust art program including rotational exhibits accompanied by engaging public events at our mid-century modern complex. The temporary exhibits complement the permanent collection of more than 150 artworks from over 110 artists. Art can be seen and experienced throughout the four towers, The Hadley restaurant, and the grounds of the property listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.

Park Towne Place’s art program, the winner of the 2018 Multi-Family Executive Award for Best Amenity, is located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, home to Philadelphia’s most treasured museums and cultural institutions.

Chiaroscuro Spring

Chiaroscuro Spring highlights the work of seven artists whose work celebrates Spring as not only a season but a time of growth and rebirth. Throughout the show, the included artists, Anita Allyn, Marilyn Holsing, Sam Nejati, Heather Ossandon, Laurie Beck Peterson, Rebecca Saylor Sack, and Jacqueline Yvonne present their own unique interpretations of nature’s gradual transition into Spring.

 

We are at a moment of time for cultural rebirth and reawakening as we emerge from what has felt like a year long winter of isolation. As cities reopen and we reunite with friends and family we ourselves are in a state of Spring-like blossoming: tentatively reaching out towards the sun in the hope of a warmer tomorrow.

Rotational Exhibits

Each year, Park Towne Place hosts rotational exhibits, each with its own unique theme and featured artwork.

Permanent Collection

The goal of Park Towne’s permanent collection is to be interesting and vibrant. Each piece was carefully selected from among hundreds of submissions by local, national and international artists and includes site specific commissioned pieces.

One of Our Previous Exhibitions: The Shape of Tomorrow

The Shape of Tomorrow highlights the work of five artists, all of whom’s work utilizes color and form to offer the viewer a chance to escape into abstract other-worlds. Throughout the galleries, the work of Charles Emlen, Greg Kelly, Tremain Smith, Larry Spaid, and John Howell White take unabashed joy in their included forms and color pallets to provoke the visual senses of the viewers.
