The curator at Woodmere Art Museum hangs gallery walls with pieces from the museum’s collection of works of Philadelphia art. Museum founder Charles Knox Smith narrates local stories to accompany the pieces in his collection of artwork from the 19th and 20th centuries, which includes Sarah Fisher Ame’s bust of Abraham Lincoln. Future exhibitions such as Force of Nature will give patrons a glimpse of Elaine Kurtz’s abstracted perceptions of natural forces and austere, minimalist portrayals of Mother Nature’s perfectly sorted recycling bin. Woodmere’s nine galleries and salons provide ample space for the Special Exhibitions, which rotate throughout the year.
Woodmere Art Museum’s rates vary based on guests’ age student-level status.
