Group ’55 and Midcentury Abstraction
in Philadelphia
Through May 9, 2021
In 1955, a group of Philadelphia painters, architects, musicians, and dancers organized a series of exhibitions and public forums across the city, presenting their work as a catalyst for vigorous public dialogue about the role of art and science in the postwar era. Led by Sam Feinstein, the artists became known as Group ’55.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see Group ’55 and Midcentury Abstraction in Philadelphia, which is on view through Sunday, May 9. For those unable to visit the exhibition in person, this video was created to help bring the art to you!
