Reactions from Dancing around the Bride at Philadelphia Museum of Art


you may remember i wrote about going down to philadelphia to see this performance of the cunningham dance company performance and exhibit of cage, johns, rauschenberg and duchamp.

the philadelphia museum of art is one of my favorite museums which i have gone to a few times, lots of space to see and feel everything. phila museum

oh that’s a passing patron. one of my favorite things to do when i visit this gallery is to capture people in this piece. to get to this gallery one passes so many wonderful things and delights to the eye. i hope you visit this museum it’s really worth the trip to Philadelphia.

oh and don’t forget to see the west entrance wall painting, A wheatfield on a summer afternoon by Marc Chagall  or the photography galleries on the ground floor. a lovely day of wandering around the place as if it was your own. or visit their web site at http://www.philamuseum.org/

we had a late lunch early dinner at the Good dog bar in downtown philadelphia, the food was ok but nothing to rave about.
