Philadelphia Museum of Art InsideOUT… – East Passyunk Crossing Civic | Facebook
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is sharing its art. This summer and fall, sixty high-quality replicas of Museum masterpieces will find their way into communities around the region. Each participating neighborhood will feature about ten artworks within a short distance of each other. Walk through the park, hop on a bike, or meander down Main Street through each exciting outdoor exhibition.
Join your family and friends and encounter art in unexpected places. Picnic next to Claude Monet’s iconic Japanese Footbridge, stop to smell the flowers near Georgia O’Keeffe’s Calla Lilies, or shine a flashlight on Paul Gauguin’s Sacred Mountain during a midnight stroll. Never been to the Museum? Inside Out brings treasures from its collection to you. Pick a neighborhood, grab your friends and family, and explore.
EPX and adjacent South Philadelphia neighborhoods will be home to eleven replica paintings.

From 5/11 – 5/22, Castle Ave. will be closed from 7:00am to 3:30pm to allow delivery of the crane and steel. You will recall that during our last Community Advisory meeting we discussed a plan that would eliminate approx. 4-5 parking spots on Castle Ave. due to the construction fence being expanded. This would allow delivery of the crane and steel to take place in a safer environment.
Please see this notice from The School District of Philadelphia regarding parking on Dudley Street near BOK while the school is being emptied out.
