The Painted Bride Art Center at 230 Vine Street between N. 2nd and N. 3rd Streets in the Old City neighorhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was founded in 1969 as an artist-centered performance space and gallery particularly oriented to presenting the work of local artists. It presents dance, jazz, world music, visual arts, theatre and performance art. The outside of the building the Bride is located in is completely covered by Skin of the Bride, a mosaic by Philadelphia artist Isaiah Zagar, which he created between 1991 and 2000 and donated to the center.
