A Message from Hidden City Philadelphia

Dear Adventurers,

It was only this past June that we came together to put on hard hats and explore many of the unknown wonders of Philadelphia. We journeyed into forgotten realms and brought to life the stories of our city with the work of world class artists.

Many of you told us how much you enjoyed getting the chance to see such amazing and unique places like the Metropolitan Opera House, the Royal Theater, Founder’s Hall at Girard College, and Disston Saw Works.  You also had great suggestions about other old buildings that would be ideal spaces for performing and visual artists. Anyone else hoping to see the inside of the Divine Lorraine?

So when is the next Hidden City Philadelphia?

Now comes the exciting next step - making sure we can continue this glorious adventure. But we need your help. In a perfect world, there would be unlimited funding and we could start working right away on the next Hidden City Philadelphia.  However, in order to do this again, we need your support.

Your donation to Hidden City Philaelphia will help fund the discovery and research of additional hidden sites, as well as the commissioning of new cutting-edge artistic works.

Please Donate Now

Don't Forget - You can still purchase special edition prints of the spectacular Hidden City photographs from architechural photographer Joseph E.B. Elliot.

Only together can we make this happen again,
