Preserving the Past—Planning for the Future

Donate Now

Restoring a painting like Renoir’s The Great Bathers takes more than a year of dedicated effort by a paintings conservator like Kristin Patterson. Our Conservation team is made up of passionate experts who care for the paintings, sculptures, furniture, and works on paper in our collection. Like all of us at the museum, they’re committed to making sure Philadelphia remains a world-class destination for art.

But in order to ensure our collection endures, we need your help. Please give to the Annual Fund.

Together, we will make sure that future generations can enjoy the works of art in our care. Your gift also helps us put on special exhibitions like The Impressionist’s Eye, featuring The Great Bathers, and care for our landmark building by renovating our galleries. Please make a gift to the Annual Fund today to support the many collaborations between conservators, curators, and educators that bring the museum to life.
