The Art Dept. is a non-profit collective of multidisciplinary artists who use visual arts, the written word, music, and curated objects to illuminate the culture and reclaim the history of underrepresented peoples. Our vintage shop, Colored Vintage offers the opportunity to reminisce and learn about our collective history through vintage and handmade goods. Our community workshops events and bring art, culture, and hands-on learning to area residents.

As a project of the Culture Trust of Greater Philadelphia we aim to create a communal art experience that is accessible to all. Every penny donated goes towards community programming that supports our mission by helping to keep costs down while expanding our offerings.
