Philadelphia has a long and rich history, but one that we rarely get to see in the movies.
This year, the Garden of the Arts and Philadelpha Museum of Art are opening up to the public and bringing together people from around the world to celebrate the city’s culture and art, and to celebrate Philadelpians’ love for their Garden.
The Gardens are the result of a collaboration between the Philadelphia Magic Gardens, the Philadelphean Arts and Entertainment District, the Philadelphia Public Library, and the City of Philadelphia.
The Garden of Arts and Arts District is partnering with the City to create an experience that honors Philadelphilians’ history and culture.
The public will be able to explore gardens at both the Gardens and Museum of Arts for the first time.
The Gardens will be open to the general public for two hours daily from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the Museum of the City will host an afternoon celebration on Friday, Sept. 6 from 10 a.k. to 3 p.y.
The Garden of The Arts and the Philadelphia Museum of Public Art will host a “Garden of Legends” special exhibition, showcasing the work of local artists from all over the city.
The Museum of The City will feature a short film and special exhibits about the history of Philadelphia and its culture.
The Art and Science Festival will include exhibitions by local and national artists and scientists, as well as a special presentation of the Philadelphia Philadelphi Museum of American Art.
The City is also hosting a festival of public art on Sept 6 featuring works by renowned artist Richard Avedon and the PEN Center for Photography and Photography Culture.
