Painted Bride Art Center

An innovative art center for edgy and experimental music, art, dance, poetry and other performing arts, the Painted Bridge was founded as a cooperative gallery on South Street in 1969 and later evolved into a performance space, moving to its permanent location in Historic Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood in 1982.
