The Museum is deeply saddened by the death of its longstanding friend and frequent collaborator, architect #RobertVenturi (1925–2018). Born in Philadelphia, #Venturi was beloved and highly regarded by the art, architecture, and design community in the city, and achieved global status through his joyful, experimental, and exuberant built and designed forms. He will be remembered as a giant who profoundly changed his field, and the lives of those who encountered his work, no more so, than the many friends he made over the years at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
