Last year, we organized a trip from New York to Philly to see some of the city’s best art and museums. It was so much fun, we’re heading back to the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.
Join us on Saturday, October 14, as we visit the ICA Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), and the Fabric Workshop and Museum to see some of this fall’s not-to-be-missed exhibitions.
On this trip, we’ll stop by:
- The ICA Philadelphia, where we’ll visit Speech/Acts, an exhibit that considers how language has shaped Black experiences. We’ll also see Nathalie Du Pasquier, Big Objects Not Always Silent, a retrospective of the artist and designer.
- PAFA, where we’ll take a look at three exhibitions: Chuck Close Photographs, Beyond Boundaries: Feminine Forms, an exhibit focusing on work by women artists, and the hub for Monument Lab, currently on view at sites throughout the city.
- The Fabric Workshop, for a landmark exhibition about architect Louis Kahn.
Plus, we’ll get to chat about what we’ve seen over lunch and dinner at two of Philadelphia’s excellent restaurants, Distrito and Front Street Cafe.
At each venue, a curator or docent will lead us through the exhibitions and illuminate the artwork on view.
Tickets are all-inclusive for the day, including round-trip transit from New York City to Philadelphia on a private bus, admission to all three exhibitions, tours, and both lunch and dinner.
Our bus will leave from the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan promptly at 8am (exact location will be given to ticketholders), and we will return to New York City at approximately 10pm. The day will be packed, and it will be amazing!
Tickets are $140 each. Space is limited, so be sure to get your tickets today.
Come join the adventure and visit three of Philadelphia’s best museums with fellow Hyperallergic readers and staff!
