During the summer of 1951, the Albright Art Gallery sponsored the second annual Rose Garden Art Show. This sidewalk sale and exhibition of artwork by local artists occurred in the Delaware Park Rose Garden on July 24 and 25, from 6 pm until dark. The exhibition featured not only art, but also included a variety of musical and dramatic entertainment. More than 5,000 people attended and more than 200 artworks were sold by over 150 artists. During the evenings, Sydney Owen Jennings sketched portraits of visitors to the exhibit, including former AAG Director Edgar Schenck.
