What are Our Internships

Over the years, the mission of the Brandywine Workshop and Archives (BWA) has evolved as evidenced through its programming such as the Visual Artists in Public Service projects, artists in residence series, national and international exhibitions, artist exchanges and a national network of “Satellite Collections”.

Founded in 1972 as the Brandywine Graphic Workshop, in the Spring Garden neighborhood of North Philadelphia— a low-moderate income predominantly Black and Hispanic, working class community —as a collective of artists and art teachers, Brandywine was incorporated as a 501 (3) tax –exempt cultural institution in 1974.-
