The Galleries at Moore

As a gateway between the College and the city of Philadelphia, The Galleries are a catalyst for creative exploration, experimentation and scholarship and function as a gathering place to meet, reflect, learn, challenge, and create—our commitment to academic, artistic, and curatorial freedoms is evidenced through our inclusive and innovative exhibitions and events, all of which are free and open to the public.

What to see during CollegeFest: Visit Rochelle Levy: By the Sea, an exhibition that explores the prolific work of alum Rochelle F. Levy ’79. Known for her depictions of equestrian tableaus, peaceful seaside moments, and beaches populated with an ever-changing ensemble cast of characters, Levy has been painting picturesque scenes from her life and travels for more than fifty years.
