Drexel to Support Increased Arts and Culture Opportunities

May 9, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

I have exciting news to announce that will benefit our faculty and professional staff, as well as support the arts and culture sector in Philadelphia.

Drexel University announced yesterday that it is joining a pilot program designed to enhance audience and attendee participation at the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Barnes Foundation, the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This partnership will enable the university to receive tickets to certain events and performances that will be made available to faculty and professional staff.

The program, to be known as the Philadelphia Cultural Pass, is similar to initiatives implemented in other cities, including New York. It is also yet another way to underscore Drexel's commitment to the city as an anchor institution. Drexel is one of two institutions participating in the Cultural Pass program — the other is Penn Medicine.

Philadelphia is fortunate to be home to so many world-renowned cultural organizations. The Cultural Pass will give our faculty and professional staff more opportunities to enjoy and support those venerable organizations. I am delighted that Drexel is one of the founding members of this innovative program.


John Fry
