Check out this Hidden City article about a Paul Cret exhibition at the Woodlands.

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.

    OPEN STAGES ONLINE: Life of Lorca, Part 5
    by Walter Bilderback, Production Dramaturg Lorca's Death In the years after Blood Wedding premiered, Lorca finished two more plays set in rural Andalusia: Yerma and The House of Bernarda Alba.

    According to Trevor Hoppe, assistant professor of sociology at the University at Albany, SUNY, "criminalization is never the appropriate response to infectious disease."

    SRC votes to dissolve, taking first step toward local control of schools
    Many, including Mayor Kenney, have wondered aloud in the past if the dissolution of the SRC would damage relations with Harrisburg and imperil attempts at cooperation. Monson and Geary, however, said they noticed no change in lawmaker attitudes toward the formula change, even as the momentum gathered for local control.
