Community Art Closet

Calling all creatives, makers and emerging artists! We are excited to introduce the PMG Community Art Closet.  

The art closet is stocked with a range of supplies for all skills and age ranges, including art supplies, craft materials and more! Use what you find inside to make a new craft or add onto a project you are currently working on. We hope the materials you find in our closet will help inspire creativity and support artists in the city of Philadelphia and beyond.
