As one of America's oldest and most historic cities, Philadelphia is unmatched when it comes to venues suitable for gallery events. You can book space in world-class art galleries, museums, community centers, and other venues that celebrate the arts through exhibitions. Galleries are also wonderful places to hold weddings, private parties, and other celebrations in a classy atmosphere.
Galleries offer some great benefits over party halls and other, less decorated spaces. The venue's display art, lighting, and overall design fosters contemplation of the arts. For events involving art, like cultural classes, wine and art nights, and First Fridays, a gallery or exhibition hall is the perfect venue. Many gallery rentals also include access to the display areas of the venue. You can host a wedding party or corporate gathering at an art museum, have dinner in an event hall, and then invite guests to explore the grounds as they like!
Art shows and galleries are popular in major cultural centers like Philadelphia. People come from all over the USA and even internationally to showcase their best work. Art galleries can be booked by the room - or you can reserve the entire gallery for major events. For small, intimate art events like community art shows and First Fridays, consider booking space at a smaller, community-oriented gallery. For large parties, international exhibitions from established artists, and other big events, major venues like the Philadelphia Museum of Art are open for business. You can host balls in an Art Deco building, hold a cocktail party in a statue garden, or enjoy views of the skyline on a rooftop party hall!

Philadelphia galleries hosting private events

If you want to hold a private event in a beautiful space, why not choose a gallery for your venue? Galleries for the arts add a touch of elegance to your event and are popular choices for fundraising galas, corporate events, networking events, and other upscale meetings. From the internationally acclaimed Philadelphia Museum of Art to museums celebrating specific artforms, there are galleries open to private events throughout the city.
One of our favorites is the Urban Art Gallery, located on S. 52nd St. They aim to enhance local awareness of emerging urban artists while offering educational opportunities for the community. The Urban Art Gallery also offers space for private events of all kinds while including catering, photography, and event decor!
