Philadelphia Museum of Art to bring reproductions of artworks to the streets of East Passyunk

This summer, the Philadelphia Museum of Art will be bringing reproductions of some of the artworks in the museum’s collection to East Passyunk.


The new program, called Inside/Out, will be bringing these artworks to outdoor locations throughout the neighborhood.

Passyunk Square Civic Association, East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are all partnering for this program.

The artworks will be on display throughout the neighborhood from May 15 through August 9.

Not much else is known about the program as of now, so we’ll keep you posted as we learn more about the plan for Inside/Out.

Where would you like to see these artworks displayed?

    More yuppie/hipster clutter.

      Remove your green awnings and open up the blinds, there is much more to this world than how close you can park to your house.

      More curmudgeon ramblings. Shouldn’t you be parking in the middle of broad street about now?

      Yes, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, an internally acclaimed museum with one of the most comprehensive collections of classics, is nothing but hipster clutter.

    Sure would be nice to see something by pat’s and geno’s to block out some of that tacky neon (as much as I love it). it would also provide the tourists something cultured to look at while they’re waiting in line for a cheese steak:)

      I have lived in and around East Passyunk Ave all of my life (almost 50 years) and between this post, the King of Jeans sign, and the art “installation” at 13th & Mifflin, I never realized that my senses have been under such assault during all of that time and needed to be rescued.

        Think you are projecting a bit there, Ray. Perhaps living in the same place for 50 years has clouded your take on urban areas evolving with the ebb and flow of it’s residents. Whats wrong with adding / improving quality of life and infusing some arts into shared community spaces?

          Just because I have chosen to settle in the same area I grew up in does not mean I have clouded vision or have never seen other urban areas.

          I just think that some people overestimate the power of a mural or a community garden when there are so many other important things to tackle.

            And you realize different things can be worked on at the same time too right?

            I think you underestimate the power of quality of life and enjoying being human.

    good !!! Sounds nice. Of course we will get not in my neighborhood!!!! The parking !!!!!

      Seriously, these things are going to take up parking spots?? That’ freaking ridiculous. If you want a pedestrian mall, move to the suburbs.

        If you want unlimited easy parking, move to the suburbs. You are entitled to nothing.

    Bringing PMA’s art to the Passyunk community is a great idea. Can’t wait to see it.

    Forget replicas, let’s get permanent installations. Perhaps some touchable sculpture like Alamo.

    Something we can gather around, ponder, touch, and discuss would be fun. The scale of EPA and the quantity of pedestrians would support such an installation.

    The boxer and the fountain are a good start, how about something on a new pedestrian refuge island at 12th and Passyunk.
