See Us Next Year in PIFA!

Maybe you’ve already heard about that new project PIFA – the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts. You know, the one the Kimmel Center is hatching for April 2011, bringing together the Roots, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Ballet, the Circus School and hundreds of other Philly artists for a month’s worth of collaborative, innovative arts programming across the city. Yeah, that little old thang.
Well, the Kimmel Center is announcing the majority of its programming today, and you better believe that First Person Arts is on the bill. So of course we want to share a preview of the two awesome programs we’re putting together.

First Person Arts Show and Tell: Show and Tell is a grown-up take on the grade-school favorite, allowing local and nationally-known celebrities to share the story behind a meaningful object from their lives. See and hear firsthand what inspires and moves these notable personalities. Stay tuned for our line up!
Perelman Theater
Tuesday, April 26th. Time TBD.

First Person Arts Presents The Museum of Broken Relationships: When good love goes bad, what happens to the objects once shared? They can find a new home in the Museum of Broken Relationships, an international exhibit showcasing relics from failed love affairs! In addition to the items currently in the collection (including furry handcuffs and an under knee prosthesis!), First Person Arts will be collecting new items – and stories – from the Philadelphia community to include in the exhibit. At the Kimmel Center, dates TBD.
