The Da Vinci Art Alliance was founded in 1931 and enjoys a distinguished history in Philadelphia. It was formed to serve the needs of artists and artisans and to promote the edification and appreciation of the arts. Our well-located building across from Fleisher was purchased in 1959 to provide studio, and gallery spaces for its members and outreach for the community. Da Vinci maintains a small collection of works by noted founders. The Da Vinci Art Alliance supports community based arts programs, and cultural and educational exchanges through monthly exhibitions, lectures and events.

This vital organization is supported by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund and a diverse group of artists and patrons. As we continue to expand our commitment to our members and our community, Da Vinci Art Alliance welcomes professionally qualified artists and cultural patrons. Da Vinci Art Alliance is supported by annual membership dues, gallery and studio rentals, and a 20% commission on sales of art and receives additional funding from grants and donations for special projects. Through annual dues our members proudly share in the ownership of our building and an honored tradition of volunteerism.
