As the chief art committee of the student government, SPEC Art Collective aims to integrate the visual arts into the daily life of the University community and fulfill opportunities to experience the arts readily through collaboration with various University-affiliated and non-affiliated groups and individuals.

We plan art-related events to provide students with unique opportunities to experience all the excitement that the Philadelphia art world has to offer. In the past, we have organized behind-the-scenes tours to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Fabric Workshop and Museum and private art galleries in Old City. SPEC Art Collective has also organized customized trips to world-class art institutions in New York City, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the MoMA, the Guggenheim, and Christie’s. Additionally, we host speaker events featuring influential members of the art community, manage exhibitions in the Fox Art Gallery in Claudia Cohen Hall and host the biannual Locust Walk Crafts Fair.
