Temple Performing Arts Center

Temple Performing Arts Center

In the mid-20th century, The Baptist Temple became a stop for some of the country's most important intellectual and political figures. Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke there, as did anthropologist Margaret Mead. Anne Sullivan and her famed pupil Helen Keller spoke at the Temple as did General Eisenhower when he was president of Columbia University. Alistair Cooke and Edward R. Murrow also delivered commencement addresses at The Baptist Temple.

Temple Performing Arts Center is Philadelphia's newest destination for arts, events and ideas.

Located at the heart of Temple University's campus and the northern end of the Avenue of the Arts, the Temple was built in 1891 as a home for Temple University founder Russell Conwell's congregation. The Temple is a magnificent historic landmark, repurposed today to bring new vitality to Temple's campus and new opportunities to Philadelphia's arts, culture and business communities.

In addition to being the perfect setting for a wide array of performances, events and meetings, the Temple also presents its own schedule of cultural and educational programs.
