A generous donor has presented us with a challenge grant … if we raise $25,000 in donations by December 31, 2010, the donor will match each donation- dollar for dollar – any amount you donate will be doubled! NOW is the time to help us reach this goal!

The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center celebrated our one-year anniversary on October 28th with Philly Photo Day! The day was an overwhelming success — we received over 300 photographs, which were revealed at an exhibition on November 11th. It’s been an exciting first year, and we met our goal of creating a home for contemporary photography in Philadelphia. At PPAC, anyone can learn about, react to, discuss, or just enjoy photography. Imagine, just over a year ago, Philadelphia did not have a contemporary photography center. There was no place that was combining the latest in digital technology with artist talks, classes, events, and cutting-edge exhibitions. Flash forward one year, and a lot has happened. Without the support of people like you, this would not have been possible.

Next year promises to be even more successful, with new exhibitions, events, talks, and workshops.

We plan to add:

·An artist residency program, which will be the only photography-based residency program in Philadelphia

·An expanded after-school program

·A set of more ambitious exhibitions, with stronger educational links to local schools.

To accomplish our goals, PPAC needs your support. Please consider joining PPAC as a donor. These contributions will help PPAC sustain and expand our activities in 2011.
