We love Philadelphia! So, on Saturday, October 22, we’re organizing an art-filled day trip from NYC to visit the ICA Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), and the Fabric Workshop and Museum to take in three must-see shows this season.
At the ICA Philadelphia, we’ll delve into the vibrant world of avant-garde jazz and experimental music of the late 1960s. Then, at PAFA, we’ll get a rare glimpse of famed US painter Thomas Eakins’s provocative 19th-century photographs (and a sneak peek at his studio). Finally, at the Fabric Workshop, we’ll explore the visceral and temporal work of internationally recognized multimedia artist Ann Hamilton.
To make sure you get the most out of this trip, we’ve arranged for a curator or educator from each institution to give us an inside look at and introduction to each exhibition.
The exhibitions we’ll visit are as follows:
- ICA Philadelphia
The Freedom Principle: Experiments in Art and Music from 1965 to Now
- Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA)
Thomas Eakins: Photographer
- Fabric Workshop & Museum
Ann Hamilton: habitus
Tickets include round-trip transit from New York City to Philadelphia on a private bus, admission to all three exhibitions, tours, and dinner in the heart of Philadelphia’s Chinatown.
Our bus will leave from the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan (exact location to be announced) promptly at 8am and return to New York City at approximately 10pm. It will be a full day of museum going, and it will be worth it!
We’re offering a $65 early bird special for tickets purchased before end of day (11:59pm) on Monday, October 10. Space is limited, and tickets purchased after October 10 will be $80, so be sure to get yours today.
