Fine Art in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh

Philadelphia alone, the largest city in the state and sixth most populous in the country, features enough art to keep a student busy for years. Aside from many galleries, which stay open late on the first Friday of every month, Philadelphia has several renowned art museums. These include the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Rodin Museum, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, whose stairs were made famous by the film Rocky. In addition to its art institutions, Philadelphia has more public art and murals than any other American city. Though slightly smaller in size, Pittsburgh is not to be outdone, with its large indie and punk scene and its famous Andy Warhol Museum and Carnegie Museum of Art.
