Inside Out: Fall installations begin this week, on view through November

The Philadelphia Museum of Art, with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, continues its 2016 season of Inside Out, a major arts initiative that brings high-quality reproductions of Museum masterpieces into communities throughout the city and region.

From August 3 through November 1, residents of Brewerytown in Philadelphia, Bristol, Conshohocken, Jenkintown, Phoenixville, and Upper Darby will discover outdoor art installations of Museum masterpieces popping up in their communities. This is the second year the Museum has participated in the program, having brought Inside Out to towns across Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties last year.

Timothy Rub, the Museum’s George D. Widener Director and Chief Executive Officer, said: “This project is not simply about the Museum sharing its masterpieces. This is a community project and it is about what we can do together. The Museum’s treasures are the community’s treasures, and they are for the enjoyment of everyone. We are delighted to build on last year’s success and share our art in this creative way, engaging a broader and more diverse audience across the entire region.”

"It is one thing to see such stirring works of art in a museum, but an entirely new experience to view them outdoors. By bringing Inside Out to communities across Philadelphia, we’re able to share the treasures of the Philadelphia Museum of Art more broadly and engage people directly as they go about their everyday lives, encountering art in unexpected places,” said Victoria Rogers, Vice President for Arts at Knight Foundation.

From September 16 through 18, 2016, the Museum will offer free admission to residents living in Brewerytown (19121), Bristol (19007), Conshohocken (19428, 19429), Jenkintown (19046), Phoenixville (19460), and Upper Darby (19082), Pennsylvania.

Inside Out in Philadelphia

Philadelphia is the third city to present this innovative program, thanks to Knight Foundation’s support. In 2015, participating communities included Ambler, Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy, East Passyunk, Fishtown/Kensington, Media, Newtown, Norristown, Wayne and West Chester, as well as Haddonfield, New Jersey. In the spring of 2016, the communities of Coatesville, Doylestown, Lansdowne, Narberth, Old City, and Tacony participated in Inside Out.

About Inside Out

Inside Out was conceived by the Detroit Institute of the Arts as a way to engage the community in its collection, and has been in hundreds of locations over the past five years and engaged thousands of residents. Knight Foundation, which believes that weaving the arts into the fabric of communities inspires the people who live there, is helping to continue the success of the project by funding the program in several cities around the country, including Akron, Ohio, and others to be announced in 2016.


About the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation

Knight Foundation supports transformational ideas that promote quality journalism, advance media innovation, engage communities, and foster the arts. Knight believes that democracy thrives when people and communities are informed and engaged. Within its national arts program, Knight believes that the arts are a catalyst for public dialogue and that shared cultural experiences contribute to a sense of place and communal identity. They seek innovative ways to reach, engage, and increase audiences for the arts through key initiatives such as Random Acts of Culture and the Knight Arts Challenge, which have brought art into people’s everyday lives and continue to create collective cultural experiences.


Knight Foundation has supported the Philadelphia Museum of Art for more than four decades, most recently with the generous grant for Inside Out and for the 2012–13 exhibition Dancing around the Bride: Cage, Cunningham, Johns, Rauschenberg, and Duchamp.
