PAFA’s Annual Student Exhibition
In addition to serving as a museum that is internationally acclaimed for its collections of 19th- and 20th-century American artwork, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) is a prestigious art school that attracts students from across the United States and the world. Each spring, students exhibit (and sell) their work to the public throughout PAFA’s galleries during the Annual Student Exhibition. It’s an excellent opportunity to nab works from artists before they hit it big.
