Considered as one of the largest museums in the United States, the Philadelphia Museum of Art houses a collection of more than 227,000 objects across 200 galleries.
These objects vary from painting to sculpture to photography, textile, decorative art and architectural settings from various countries. The museum has recently unraveled a master plan to revamp as well as to expand.
Along with the announcement the museum also revealed a new identity which was designed by the famed designer and Pentagram’s Paula Scher.
Scher made use of the huge artwork collection and used pieces of it to transform the letter “A” to represent the collection.Not only to highlight the vast collection but also to put the art in front and at the center according to Pentagram.
