Philly Art Centers’ Fairmount location opened its doors in 2004, in the heart of the Art Museum Area. Light-filled studios in a charming corner storefront mark our flagship location.
Located in the Art Museum Area, we are on 25th Street, one block north of Fairmount Avenue. Getting here is easy, just turn north onto 25th from Eakins Oval, Kelly Drive, Pennsylvania Avenue, or Fairmount Avenue and we are just up on the NW corner. Parking is convenient and we are on the bus route.
There is plenty of on-street parking near the Art Center Fairmount location. While the parking is unmetered, some streets do have a two or three hour limit. There is also a parking lot on Fairmount Avenue between 22nd and 23rd streets. Charges for parking are $3.00 per hour and $5.00 for the day.
