ABOUT THE BRODSKY CENTER
The Brodsky Center at PAFA enables established and emerging artists to create new work in paper and print. Artists-in-residence are invited to engage in collaborations with its master printers and master papermakers.
The Brodsky Center is part of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia (PAFA), America's first school and museum of fine arts. Founded in 1805, PAFA offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the fine arts, groundbreaking exhibitions of historic and contemporary art, and a world-class collection of American art. The Brodsky Center's mission aligns uniquely with PAFA's mission to educate students and develop and promote the work of outstanding and innovative artists.
Established at Rutgers University in 1986, the Brodsky Center joined PAFA in 2018. Over its thirty-year history, it has engaged about three hundred artists primarily from diverse backgrounds and women artists who created over six hundred editions.
Editions produced by the Brodsky Center are included in the collections of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Bibliothèque nationale de France (Paris), Cleveland Museum of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Museum of Modern Art (New York), Newark Museum, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (Philadelphia), Philadelphia Museum of Art, Stadtmuseum Berlin, and Victoria & Albert Museum (London), among other museums, as well as many private collections.
