Christmas shopping, programming at Phila. Art Museum, Weitzman, AAMP

The Philadelphia Museum of Art hosts dozens of exhibits, including the exclusive Matisse in the 1930s.

You can browse more than 140 works in seven galleries before shopping in the dedicated exhibition shop, filled with gifts inspired by Henri Matisse and his art.

“We have everything from vintage handbags to groceries imported from France to a selection of books about Matisse,” says Christine Kostyrka, director of retail at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Matisse in the 1930s runs through January 29th.

The museum has three other shops with great gifts to tick off your list.

The main store has everything from postcards and posters to books and a popular header with art supplies from around the world.

The American Shop, located next to the American Galleries, offers quilted and repurposed items, as well as ceramics and tinware.

The Design Store is perfect for lovers of modern design of all kinds.

Shops at the museum support nearly 100 local manufacturers.

You can also browse more than 4,000 items in the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s online store.


The Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History features Hanukkah gifts and decor.

“We have all the essentials like menorahs, dreidels, hostess and hostess gifts for Hanukkah parties, and greeting cards,” says Kristen Kreider, general manager of the Weitzman.

Many of the items are curated by local and Israeli manufacturers.

There are several items with ties to Philadelphia, including designs of the LOVE sculpture in Hebrew characters, and an entire line of products celebrating the 16-foot OY/YO sculpture that stands in front of the museum.

100% of the store’s proceeds support the museum’s mission to preserve and celebrate Jewish history in America.

“There’s so much here that you don’t have to be a Jew to appreciate it,” says Kreider.

The Weitzman’s biggest day of the year is actually Christmas Day.

It’s a day of programmes, music and films designed to welcome people from all backgrounds.

“Buddhists and Muslims and people who don’t celebrate any religion, or Christians who want to get out of the house,” says Kreider.


The African American Museum in Philadelphia has a number of Kwanzaa programs planned.

“We enjoy our African descent. We reclaim our heritage and are proud of who we are, where we came from and what we have created,” said Morgan Lloyd, program coordinator at AAMP.

The seven-day celebration runs from December 26 to January 1 with panel discussions, drum circles and a night market.

The museum’s gift shop is a showcase of black excellence, with items from historical figures such as Octavius ​​Catto, Harriet Tubman, and Vice President Kamala Harris.

There are also items with traditional African prints, including purses and fans.

The vision & Spirit” exhibit is a must-see, highlighting the creative spirit of African-American artists.

“Vision & Spirit” runs until February 19.
