Join us on a private tour to view PMA's latest exhibit.

From jazz and the jitterbug to assembly lines and skylines, the early 20th century was a time of great social, artistic, and technological change.

Artists responded with a revolutionary language of shapes and colors.

See how Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Jacob Lawrence, and others challenged convention and forged bold new styles to fit the times.  Our guide's expert commentary will deepen our understanding about how artists captured the essence of modern American life.

Our private tour is limited to 25, so please register promptly here on line, or at 267-444-4507 (M-F, 9-6).  The deadline for registering and payment is July 27 - no exceptions! no payment at the door!  The cost of the tour is $26 for seniors, payable by credit card on line, or by check (made out to EFCC/EFV) and sent to PO Box 12672, Phila, PA  19129.  (There will be no charge for PMA staff and volunteers, but they must register.) PMA members do not get a reduced rate, because this is a private tour.
Those who wish to car pool should indicate this when registering; for carpooling, we will meet at the library at 9:30.  If you prefer, meet us at the Museum, West Entrance, by 10:00.
