On Sunday May 7th a group of us are getting together to go down to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Why, you may ask? Well for one it is “Pay what you Wish day”, instead of paying regular admission, you get to pay what you wish for general admission, it does
not include any special exhibits that are currently running. Second, you would be going with a group of fellow artists and those that love art. Third it is educational and fun.
To get in on this, we are meeting at the museum around 11 in the morning, (the Museum opens at 10 on Sundays). If you plan to have lunch there, there are several choices. The Museum Café offers fresh-baked goods, hot and cold beverages, soups, salads, sandwiches, and snacks, along with a build-your-own-burrito bar and a selection of local beers and wine. Or the Art Café which offers a rotating selection of salads, sandwiches, and sweets.
Then you have the exhibits, anything from Modern and Contemporary Art to European Art from the 1500’s.
Currently there is a special exhibition(which has a separate admission fee) on American Watercolor in the Age of Homer and Sargent. This exhibit ends May 14th.
Learn about Marcel Duchamp and the Fountain Scandal.
Or go the Pearlman building for Phulkari: The Embroidered Textiles of Punjab from the Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz Collection.
All we ask is that you contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org and use the Subject “PMA Field Trip” to let us know that you are going.
