The Philadelphia Museum of Art has an astounding art collection. There are more than 200 galleries housing more than 227,000 works in media, including photography, sculpture, paintings, textiles and more.

Every month, the Philadelphia Museum of Art hosts a big themed party as part of its Final Fridays series. The next one is on Friday, June 30, and will have the theme "Down The Shore."

To go with the theme there will be popsicles, mini golf and screen printing – all things commonly found on the boardwalk.

Below is the schedule of events.

•Local artist Nick Cassway is sharing his childhood memories of summers in Cape May Point through specially commissioned beach tags.

2017 marks the centennial of Marcel Duchamp's “Fountain.”


Play mini-golf on the East Terrace. The one-of-a-kind (and humorous) course was inspired by the museum's "Marcel Duchamp and the Fountain Scandal" collection. Artist Richard Gabriele created a plaster replica of "Fountain" to be used in the course.

•Silkscreen a tote or T-shirt to use at the beach.

5:30 p.m.

•DJ Yolo Ono, who has played festivals like Governor's Ball and Firefly, will spin tunes from the Great Stair Hall.

5:45 p.m. or 6:30 p.m.

•Go on a sketching tour through the galleries with Phillip Adams.  Materials will be provided and no drawing experience is required.

7:30 p.m.

•Louie Louie, an all-female rock group with a unique sound, will perform in the Great Stair Hall.

Admission to the museum is $14-$20 per person. Cocktails and tapas-style dishes will be available for purchase.
