With a strong local presence and an international reputation for excellence, The Print Center is a nonprofit organization that encourages the growth and understanding of photography and printmaking as vital contemporary arts through exhibitions, publications and educational programs, which are always free and open to the public.
Originally established as The Print Club in 1915, The Print Center has made its home in our idiosyncratic and wonderful historic carriage house at 1614 Latimer Street since 1917. Over the last 100 years, The Print Center has earned a distinguished reputation for its engaging exhibitions and compelling programs that highlight established and emerging local, national, and international contemporary artists. The Artists-in-Schools Program has offered valuable arts education to over 5,000 underserved Philadelphia high school students, The Annual Competition is one of the oldest art competitions in the country, now in its 92nd year and the Gallery Store offers the largest selection of contemporary prints and photographs available for sale in Philadelphia.
