The Other Big Piece of Art News in Town…
So yesterday morning was a big day for Philly arts and culture. In addition to JJ Tiziou’s superhuge mural announcement, the Kimmel Center officially unveiled the Philadelphia International Festival of Art (a.k.a. PIFA). The multidisciplinary arts festival will take place April 7 thru May 1, 2011. And in addition to such amazing Philadelphia performers/institutions like The Roots, the Pennsylvania Ballet and the Philadelphia Orchestra, First Person Arts will be getting into the act too!
Dan, Vicki and I were there yesterday for the unveiling, which brought together art and culture makers/supporters from across the city.
Stay tuned for the official announcement of programming on April 7th and how First Person Arts will be involved in the “Collaboration, Creativity and Innovation” of PIFA!
