Paula Marincola, executive director of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, is recognized in the November 2018 issue of Philadelphia Style Magazine as one of nine city leaders “on the front lines of philanthropy in Philadelphia.”

The article acknowledges Philadelphia as a “nexus for dynamic cultural experiences,” fostered by the Center’s annual grantmaking work, which has awarded more than $98 million to local artists and organizations since 2006. Marincola tells Philadelphia Style: “Art inspires us; it educates us; it comforts us; it entertains us. Art is one of the most important expressions of our common humanity.”

Marincola appears with a diverse range of Philadelphia “philanthropic power players shar[ing] the causes closest to their hearts,” from advocates for neighborhood revitalization to environmentalism. Read more>>

Earlier this year, Marincola was awarded an honorary degree from Drexel University, and she was named one of Philadelphia’s "Revolutionary Bosses" by Philadelphia Magazine in 2016.
