Enabling Direct Engagement with Great Art

Arthur Ross Gallery at the University of Pennsylvania

The Arthur Ross Gallery opened its doors in 1983, after New York investor, philanthropist, and collector Arthur Ross decided to establish an art gallery at the University of Pennsylvania. The gallery's mission is to advance scholarship, collaboration, and outreach through direct engagement with original art and artifacts.

Today, the gallery houses a diverse array of art representing a wide range of cultures, media, periods, and traditions. It offers dynamic exhibitions and robust education programming to University students and faculty, scholars, artists, and local communities. Among the Arthur Ross Gallery's offerings is the Engaging Minds Through Art program, which partners with underserved Philadelphia schools to provide 4th and 5th grade students access to the gallery. The Arthur Ross Gallery believes that engagement with the arts is a critical experience, and that the gallery's intimate environment offers the ideal setting for such engagement.
