Wash Square West Historic District Fundraiser
Last week we launched a fundraiser to preserve the architectural and cultural history of our neighborhood. Neighboring communities – Society Hill, Old City and Rittenhouse-Fitler – have made a commitment to protect and better manage how development impacts their neighborhood fabric. Can we count on you to help us do the same? Donate to the effort here.

ARTisPHL is a program for artists working in all mediums and at every experience level. The goal is to create high-quality, artist-driven, and community-informed public art.
