"Just as generations before us have done, it’s important that we also do our part." Great opinion piece from Evelina Bodon and Felicia Harris about getting involved within our communities.

    Most neighborhood volunteers are seniors. The time is now for millennials to get involved | Opinion
    These public spaces are gems and can be part of what makes living in a neighborhood so attractive; and they have only survived for so long because of the commitment of those few neighbors, many seniors, who are dedicated volunteers, advocates and members of friends of groups or recreation advisory councils.

    Grunting could be considered performance-enhancing for the grunter and performance-hindering for their opponent ne of tennis' perennial debates has ignited early at this year's Australian Open, after Belarusian player Aryna Sabalenka was accused of grunting too loudly during her first-round loss to Australian Ashleigh Barty.

Happy birthday, Cézanne! Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) painted “The Card Players” from 1890–1892. The one that hangs at the Barnes is the largest of several versions completed by the artist. Speaking to the might and strength inherent in Cézanne’s work, Dr. Barnes wrote: “The essential and fundamental effect of Cézanne’s form, in its best estate, is the quality of power, rendered in legitimate painting terms. Perhaps no other painter has so successfully made power the keynote of his design; not even Michelangelo…” Look for this monumental work in the main room of our Collection Gallery. 🎨 Paul Cézanne.

"a grand yet intimate piece of musical theater" "a tour-de-force performance from Jamar Williams" "Several actors in PASSING STRANGE are part of the Wilma’s recently formed HotHouse, a troupe devoted to intense physical training and to new ideas about interpretation. This production brims with them." - WHYY #WilmaPassingStrange

    Review: 'Passing Strange,' and grandly
    Broad Street between Locust and Spruce streets Runs through Feb. 18 - Bold, boisterous, and bellicose, the Wilma Theater production of the musical "Passing Strange" seems much more real than it did on Broadway 10 years ago. And that's important: What's real or not is at the core of the engrossing musical.
