Have you ever thought about where the word "chairman" comes from? Or what furniture has to do with political power? Or what makes it art, alongside paintings and sculptures? We're excited to explore those questions this week with experts from the PMA, the Barnes, and other notable nearby museums.
In other news, Woodmere Art Museum has a new photo exhibition that gets creative with old-fashioned methods, and I'm sharing about heading to my first tattoo shop, right in my South Philly neighborhood, and what the ink means to me.
I'm heading to my first Philly Fringe show a week from tonight. The new season is almost here, and we're ready for it. We'd love to hear about what you're most excited to see. Catch you next week, when it all gets started.
