Arts & Culture


From honoring the past by preserving amazing works of art, to cultivating a passion for creativity in our youth, PECO powers the arts and culture in our local community.

Franklin Institute

PECO is proud to sponsor many exciting exhibits and special programs at The Franklin Institute, and to share our love of science with our community. Our interactive core exhibit, Electricity, teaches children about the power of electricity and how it will shape our future. Plus, in 2016, we sponsored two exciting openings. The first, Robot Revolution, explored how robots can change the way we live, work and play. The second, Jurassic World: The Exhibition, immersed visitors in a dinosaur-inhabited land featuring incredibly life-like animatronic creatures.

PECO is a proud supporter of the African American Museum in Philadelphia (AAMP), the first institution built by a major U.S. city to collect and preserve art and artifacts that document the history and culture of African Americans and people of the African Diaspora. The PECO-sponsored core exhibit, Audacious Freedom: The History of African Americans in Philadelphia from 1776 to 1876, has received critical acclaim. PECO also sponsors AAMP's annual gala, and provides support for opening receptions, public programs and exhibitions that are visited by thousands annually.      

Brandywine River Museum

PECO believes art is a window to our shared past. PECO is proud to sponsor Sensory Saturdays, which are days designed exclusively for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and sensory processing differences. Sensory Saturdays are held twice a year with adapted activities designed to engage these individuals and their families in free, hands-on art activities. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents of children with special needs to connect with other families.

The Barnes Foundation


PECO is committed to making art more accessible to everyone, including our underrepresented communities. That's why we're proud to offer PECO Free First Sundays at The Barnes Foundation. First Sundays help engage new and diverse audiences through complimentary ticketing and public programming on the first Sunday of each month. Most attendees are visiting the Barnes for the first time, and additional community partnerships help even more people experience all the Barnes has to offer.

To learn more about Free First Sundays, visit The Barnes Foundation.
