Abington Arts Center is one of the greatest hidden gems in the Philadelphia \ Montco area! The art exhibits and sculpture park are world class. The events, such as summer movie nights and the concert series, are perfect for family fun without breaking the bank. The art auctions and fundraisers should not be missed! Kudos to all of the staff!
The Abington Art Center is a very valuable community resource. I have been using its facilities and attending its programs for nearly 30 years. The range and quality of its programs has steadily increased. It's great to live near such a treasure.
