First Lady Susan Corbett Announces Spring Tour Season, New Art Exhibition at the Governor’s Residence


Harrisburg – Pennsylvania First Lady Susan Corbett today announced the start of spring tour season at the Governor’s Residence in Harrisburg and the opening of the latest art exhibition, “Traditions of Excellence: Selected Artwork by the Faculty and Alumni of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.”


“The governor and I are pleased to partner with the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts to present this exhibition of stunning, contemporary artwork,” Mrs. Corbett said. “The collection truly showcases the incredible talent of the faculty and alumni of this prestigious Pennsylvania art institution.”


The exhibition is comprised of twenty three original works of art that highlight the school’s unique teaching philosophy. Each painting, print, and drawing demonstrates a variety of artistic elements, such as texture, shape and color.  The exhibition will be on display through September 2014.


Founded in 1805, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts is located in Philadelphia and is home to a school of fine arts and a world-class museum of American art.


Public tours are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., from April 1 through June 26, 2014. Tours are conducted by volunteer docents at no charge; however, reservations are required and can be made by calling the tour line at 717-772-9130.
