The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) promotes the transformative power of art and art making. Founded in 1805, PAFA is America’s first school and museum of fine arts. A recipient of the National Medal of Arts, PAFA offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the fine arts, innovative exhibitions of historic and contemporary American art, and a world-class collection of American art. The permanent collection ranges from 18th and 19th century masters such as Benjamin West, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer and Mary Cassatt to modern and contemporary artists including Charles Demuth, Jacob Lawrence, Alice Neel, Vik Muniz, Mickalene Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley. PAFA’s school attracts some of the most committed and promising art students from across the country and around the globe to study with a distinguished faculty of working artists, as well as private studios for students, a historic cast collection, and the opportunity for students to exhibit in a world-class museum.
