What is the ARCO Park Preservation Society?
It’s a Facebook gathering for people who attended or worked in the Philadelphia College of Art back when it was the Philadelphia College of Art! It’s sort of like a class reunion only you don’t have to drive anywhere or eat a rubbery chicken dinner. Everyone is gathered on the internet where you can come as you are!
No degree is required! If you remember spending a semester or two drawing series upon series of horizontal pencil lines for reasons unknown or bending window screen into shapes that somehow piqued your teacher’s interest, you can become a member. Were you a teacher that acted as if your interest was piqued by 19-year-olds ruining perfectly good window screen? You can become a member! Did you work security or in the registrar’s office? You are welcome, too!
Come and let us know what you’re up to or share some memories. We LOVE photos so come on over to the Facebook page and lay them on us!
Best of all, it’s FREE! Well, you’re on the hook to pay for your internet service, but you were anyway.The Arco Park Preservation Society

When I was six years old, this was an important magazine. I remember getting so excited when I would go to the public library and find a new issue of this or “BANANAS” magazine. It was mostly filled with photos of movie and television personalities accompanied by useless information about them. It was basically “US” magazine for kids.
"After a hot concert, Donnie and Marie like to cool down with a banana split!"
"J.J. Walker thinks reading is ‘DYNO-MITE!’"
"Shaun Cassidy loves to rollerskate!"
