Furness & Hewitt’s architectural splendor on North Broad Street, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), will be the subject of a drawing tour with established artist, Patrick Connors. Completed in 1876, the National Historic Landmark building is the third structure to house PAFA and its exhibition galleries since the Academy’s inception as the country’s oldest art school. PAFA’s graduate roster boasts a who’s who in American art that spans over 200 years – some of whose work can be found in the museum that will constitute part of the tour.

As an artist, PAFA alum, and faculty member, Patrick Connors is uniquely qualified to lead this drawing tour and visit to the PAFA Museum. The event will begin with sketching the building exterior, which amalgamates the Second Empire, Renaissance Revival and Gothic Revival styles. Attendees will then draw the interior, and visit the PAFA museum. Registration for this drawing tour includes access to the museum for the remainder of the day.

Patrick Connors is a painter living in Philadelphia, and a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania. Awards include an Oxford Fellowship in Painting and Anatomy; a Franz & Virginia Bader Fund Grant, and a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant. Teaching and lecturing venues include Yale University Art Gallery, the New York Academy of Art graduate school, and the ICAA Beaux-Arts Atelier: Manhattan & Rome programs. His solo exhibition of landscapes inspired by Fairmount Park was presented by Gross McCleaf Gallery in April 2017.
