Founded in 2006, the OCJAC was envisioned as a platform to build community through the arts. Building steadily since then, the OCJAC gallery has become an exhibition space for serious artists, holds monthly "First Friday" art receptions with a Jewish twist and provides social and Jewish holiday programs throughout the year. OCJAC is now a landmark gallery in the Philadelphia art scene, and is the only gallery dedicated to Jewish artistic expression and cultural exchange in Philadelphia.Make Old City Arts District part of your personalized Philadelphia itinerary using our Philadelphia route maker app.
