In 1921, the Pennsylvania Museum of Art (later renamed the Philadelphia Museum of Art) held a special loan exhibition of colonial silver, mostly American pieces, with some European ones. A catalog of the exhibit was published as Bulletin number 68 in June 1921. There are no clues as to who assembled this special volume.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art was founded in 1876, just after the close of the United States Centennial Celebration. While a Public Relations office has long been part of its organizational structure, the Museum did not designate a formal office of Marketing until 1994. That year's annual report noted for the first time a joint Marketing and Public Relations department operated by a staff of seven. Sandra Horrocks, who joined the Museum as its manager of public relations in 1971, headed the newly formed department. Other staff included Charlotte Biddle as Manager of Special Events, and Kristen B. Batley as Deputy Manager, Group Sales and Tourism. Charles Croce assumed Horrocks's position in 2000.

As reported in the 2006 Annual Report, the Museum expanded the duties and staff of its Marketing and Public Relations Department. The Department Director Charles Croce oversaw a staff of 16 who service four distinct operations; namely, media relations, marketing communications, special events and web development. These four offices were managed, respectively, by Norman Keyes, Director of Media Relations, Marcia L. Birbilis, Marketing Communications Manager, Camille Focarino, Director of Special Events and Bill Ristine, Webmaster.
