The Art Museum as Political Space
Bring your opinions and questions to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts on March 24 at 2pm, for a lively conversation about one of the most important issues facing museums in the 21st century – the relationship between institutions, artists, audiences and the politics of our day. Hear from experts in the field as they unpack the complicated, and sometimes contentious, arguments around this topic. Presenters include Nato Thompson, Artistic Director, Philadelphia Contemporary; Shantrelle P. Lewis, Curator and Critic; and Clarity Haynes, Artist and PAFA Alumnus; moderated by Susan Lubowsky Talbott, Executive Director, Fabric Workshop Museum.
Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, 118-128 North Broad Street, 215.972.7600, PAFA.org

Spring is Springing in CCD Parks!
Spring is in the air in Center City! On April 1, the grand fountains at Dilworth Park (1 South 15th Street) return, with the Air Grille, a shiny Airstream food truck operated by Brûlée Catering, reopening next to the Dilworth Park Café on April 2.

Over at Sister Cities Park (18th Street and the Parkway), the fountains switch on April 1, with the Boat Pond opening later in the month. In lovely, tucked-away John F. Collins Park (1707 Chestnut Street), the fountains also come to life on April 1. For more information on all of our parks, visit CCDParks.org.
