About Artists Equity
Artists Equity was founded in 1949 as part of a national non-profit organization for professional fine artists. Governed by an all-volunteer board of working artists, our purpose is to work collectively with individual visual artists, as well as with other organizations, throughout the greater Philadelphia area to address the concerns of the profession. Historically, Artists Equity championed improved economic and working conditions for artists, as well as the protection and expansion of artists’ rights. In 1997, the Philadelphia Chapter voted to become an independent organization to better serve the needs of its members and community. The Philadelphia Chapter sponsors two annual juried members exhibits each year, as well as events that serve to build the artistic community.
