Moore College

an original drawing of Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia by Alleanna Harris

Today’s inktober is about Moore College of Art and Design. Moore is the first and only women’s college of art and design in the United States.

It was founded in 1848 by Sarah Worthington Peter as the Philadelphia School of Design for Women. The college was renamed Moore College of Art & Design in 1932. It was named after Joseph Moore, Jr., who set up a $3 million dollar endowment in memory of his parents.

Original drawing available for purchase here.
