The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) is a national leader in fine arts education that brings together artists and the public through exceptional teaching programs, a world-class collection of American art, major exhibitions, and widely accessible public programs. PAFA, as America’s first School of Fine Arts and Museum attracts some of the most committed and promising students from across the country and around the globe to study painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture with a distinguished faculty of working artists. The Museum has assembled what scholars and collectors describe as one of the three finest collections of American art in the world, from colonial masters like John Singleton Copley and Benjamin West, to major contemporary artists such as Red Grooms and Faith Ringgold. Haverford supports the Academy’s sophisticated Board and finance committee on Board development, fundraising, friend-raising and investment policy development. We are also the presenting sponsor of one of the Academy’s premier annual events.
