The Historical Society of Pennsylvania has partnered with the Arthur Ross Gallery to present the exhibition West Philadelphia: Building a Community. The exhibition, which runs through October 11, explores the 19th-century architectural and urban development of West Philadelphia, as well as the highlights of today’s dynamic, multicultural community. Featured in the exhibit are more than a dozen watercolors from HSP’s collection by self-taught artist David J. Kennedy. Join us for a members-only lecture presented by Dr. Jeffrey Cohen of Bryn Mawr College, followed by a members’ reception.
