Moore is a vital part of the cultural fabric of Philadelphia. There is a rich interchange between Moore and the City's many cultural institutions and organizations. The active local art scene feeds and also draws from the vibrant creative community at Moore.

Building on Moore's central location, faculty often develop partnerships with local theaters, galleries and individual artists. This leads to a dynamic student experience and the exchange of ideas critical to their development as artists and designers.

Moore's Culture in the Classroom program allows for formal pairing of classroom assignments with cultural experiences. Often these collaborations may include attendance to current performances and exhibitions, and access to the creative minds behind the scenes.

The Galleries at Moore exhibit the work of regional, national and international artists and also introduce the work of Moore's emerging artists and designers through students shows exhibiting undergraduate and graduate work.
