invite_coverSince it’s founding in 1915, The Print Center has fulfilled a unique and important role in creating opportunities for artists, investigating new processes and supporting the print image in all its forms. In order to honor our accomplishments and launch a sensational second century, The Print Center is hosting an exquisite and lively evening of fine food, drink and entertainment.

In support of the Centennial Fund, the Gala & Street Party will celebrate the legacy of one of Philadelphia’s bedrock institutions, recently described as a “national treasure.” Proceeds will help us increase investment into exhibition planning, launch a publications program, expand educational offerings and prepare our home for the next one hundred years!
