Well, at this time of year boredom can set in as you live in your Allentown apartment, but we have artistic news for you…The Allentown Art Museum, located on 5th Street offers a refreshing change of view, especially if you are into art. The museum was founded in 1934 by noted Pennsylvania painter and illustrator, Walter Emerson Baum. Here you can see collections of European art, American art, and textiles. Escape from your Allentown apartment and view the museum’s recent expansion, where classrooms and more gallery space was added, as well as a cafe, expanded gift shop, and an all new glass facade on the 5th Street side. This attraction boasts of visitors from many areas of Pennsylvania, including Doylestown, Reading, and Bethlehem.
Also now part of the Museum is the Baum School of Art, a non-profit community art school where you can spend some evenings out of your Allentown apartment and take a class. They offer over 200 for children, teens and adults. Come and join this wonderful community.
Your musical intuition that tells you to get out of your Allentown apartment and listen to some classical live music will lead you to the Allentown Symphony Hall.
