Allens Lane Art Center (ALAC) was founded nearly 70 years ago in response to growing racial tensions in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia. An interracial group of neighbors who believed in the arts as an agent for unity and change established ALAC in 1953,
Today, the organization provides programs and activities that bring our diverse community together to experience and support the arts. Our vision is for ALAC is to be the model of community engagement in the arts in Northwest Philadelphia, providing quality and innovative art and cultural programming for the Greater Philadelphia Region.
Allen's Lane Art Center offers four core programs: Gallery Exhibitions, Theater Performances, Classes in Visual and Performing Arts, and Summer Art Camp for youth.
In following our mission to make the Arts as accessible as possible to our community, many events are either low-cost or free when possible.
