Beginning on February 13, the Philadelphia Museum of Art will offer pay-what-you-wish Wednesday evenings. Guests will be invited to roam the galleries and exhibits of the Museum's main building on the Franklin Parkway. And the Museum will be staging structured conversations, films, live music, and performance pieces inside the galleries themselves.
This Wednesday will see music from DJ Ravi Jackson. There will be an opportunity for guests to create handmade valentines with teaching artists from Fleisher Art Memorial, a conversation with well-known Indian artist Atul Dodiya, and a "Triple Play," in which guests join artist Katie Pfohl for a discussion of three artworks in thirty-three minutes.
Next Wednesday, February 20, will offer similar programs. Local artists Diane Pieri and Stephane Rowley will lead a group sketching session in the galleries, Ainsley M. Cameron, the Museum's expert in Indian and Himalayan art, will be leading a discussion on Indian painting, and there will be a yoga session on the Great Stair Hall balcony.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is located at 2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and is open until 8:45 p.m., every Wednesday night.
