McKenzie / Brown Galleries
Located within the Inn at Penn, 3600 Sansom Street
The Lloyd P. Jones Collection of the Sculpture of R. Tait McKenzie &, The Harry Fields Collection of the Sculpture of Joe Brown. Sport has long influenced art. Exalted in Greco-Roman times, the athlete provided artists with models of endurance and form. Whether running, jumping, or throwing, the athlete stood for human achievement at its highest level. Like the works of the ancient Greeks, the athletes depicted by sculptors R. Tait McKenzie (1867-1938) and Joe Brown (1909-1985) are metaphors for human striving and excellence.
