Old City is Philadelphia’s hub for art and design. This renowned arts district, home to more than 30 art galleries and home décor showrooms, has been designated as one of America’s top ArtPlaces.  A broad range of artistic expression is represented in the galleries, and the selection of home design and furnishings includes contemporary, mid-century modern, exquisite hand-crafted furniture and imports from distant lands. On the First Friday of the every month, Old City comes alive in celebration as the galleries open new exhibits, and design showrooms display their new lines.  Businesses stay open late with special programs, and throngs of people come to appreciate art, shop, dine and enjoy live music on the historic streets.
