Limited Capacity seats available

Explore the architecture of Frank Furness at the University of Pennsylvania’s Fisher Fine Arts Library. The purpose-built library, one of the first of its kind, opened in 1891 as the University Library. It has had a long and storied history: library and museum, headquarters of the Institute of Contemporary Art, backdrop in the movie Philadelphia, and finally the home of the university’s collections on art, art history, architecture, landscape architecture, historic preservation, and city planning. The building was restored in 1991 by the firm of Venturi, Rauch & Scott Brown. Assistant Director Patty Guardiola will guide you through parts old and new – including the G. Holmes Perkins rare book collection on architectural history, and the recently opened Materials Library.

Free | Limited to 20 participants.
