Philly Art Center’s Fairmount location, our flagship, opened its doors in the heart of the Art Museum Area in 2004. We relocated to a bigger space in 2019, right on Fairmount Avenue. Our new studio is specially designed from the inside out, and equipped with thoughtful lighting, colorful walls and huge stainless steel sinks! Just the perfect place for getting creative!
Getting here is easy, just turn north onto Fairmount Avenue from Eakins Oval, Kelly Drive, or Pennsylvania Avenue.
On-street parking is available, starting from Pennsylvania Avenue, on up. Parking is unmetered, with two or three hour limits on some streets. There is also a parking lot on Fairmount Avenue between 22nd and 23rd streets.
Septa bus routes #48 and the #7 both stop at the corners of 23rd & Aspen, 25th & Brown, & 23rd & Fairmount. The #48 travels down 21st to Market Street, turns around in Old City, and returns on Arch Street and back up 22nd. The #7 travels down 21st street to Market, makes a right to 23rd and goes to Oregon Avenue in South Philadelphia and returns up 22nd Street.
