Arts & Culture


Art has the power to encourage, to make us laugh, and to unite us with strangers for a common experience. PECO is proud to continue creating and supporting programs that improve the quality of life for people in the communities where we live, work, and serve by supporting organizations and institutions that break barriers, make the arts accessible to all communities, and most of all, use the arts to remind us that, while the world continues to change, we are in this together.

The African American Museum in Philadelphia


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 proud to offer Free First Sundays at The Barnes Foundation. Since June 2012, PECO's sponsorship has enabled the Barnes Museum to offer complimentary ticketing and public programming every first Sunday of the month with the goal of making the Barnes accessible and welcoming to underrepresented communities. By removing the barrier of cost and offering programming that is engaging and relevant, Free First Family Sundays enables the Barnes to prioritize diversity and inclusion. Last December, marked 100 years since the Barnes Foundation was established and it has also been ten years of PECO's support as corporate partner.
