What is the Painted Bride?

The Painted Bride, an arts organization founded in 1969, brings together artists, audiences, and communities to push the boundaries of creating and experiencing art.

It has supported over 25,000 artists, hosted over 5,000 events, commissioned over 100 new works, and facilitated manifold artist and community workshops and educational programs. The Bride cultivates a welcoming environment for critical dialogue and playful exchange to transform lives and communities through art. It is committed to supporting artists from all walks of life and amplifying underrepresented voices to foster diversity and inclusivity. The Painted Bride is forging a bold new path that brings artists’ work into Philadelphia neighborhoods through dynamic community partnerships. This creative evolution will allow the organization to support powerful and provocative projects that explore adaptation, scale, and reinvention.
