The Heritage Center of The Union League of Philadelphia

It's going to be a busy Monday at the Heritage Center--We're hosting two programs that evening! Join us at 6:00pm for a joint program with the Museum Council of Greater Philadelphia, a tour of the Union League, including a behind-the-scenes look at the archives and time to explore the exhibition "Discovering Art in Philadelphia, Treasures from Private Collections." More information about the tour, including how to register, is available through the link below. Space is limited, so please register early! Interested in learning more about the exhibition? Join us for a panel discussion moderated by Anna Marley, Curator of Historical American Art at PAFA The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, with artists Elizabeth Osborne, Diane Burko, and Moe Brooker, whose works are represented in the exhibit. Cocktails (cash bar) at 6:00pm, program (free and open to the public!) at 6:30pm. Email foundations@unionleague.org to RSVP. Please note that the Union League dress code will be in place for both events, but for the summer - business casual is it!
