    As city waits on soda tax ruling, private sector pours on support for Rebuild
    Given all the news stories that have described Rebuild as a "$500 million initiative," you might have assumed that, at least by now, the project's funding was set in stone. While that's largely true, there still are a few unknown variables for financing for Rebuild, Mayor Jim Kenney's massive attempt to rewrite the future of the city's rec centers, libraries, playgrounds, and parks.

Did you hear the great news? Knight Foundation awarded Fairmount Park Conservancy $3.28 million for bolstering residents' engagement in the city’s changing public spaces. The grant will fund work for two to three years, which will aim to build up the capacity of friends groups (for libraries and parks) and recreation center advisory councils.

Jean Hugo was born in Paris on this day in 1894. Great-grandson of author Victor Hugo, he was a painter, illustrator, and theatre designer whose work brought him into contact with some of the most influential figures of 20th century art: Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Erik Satie, Marcel Proust, and many more. In addition to avant-garde theatre, he notably designed the costumes and sets for Carl Dreyer’s film “The Passion of Joan of Arc.” His personal work was modest in scale and dream-like in tone, mingling the influences of Henri Rousseau, Nicolas Poussin, and the Italian Primitives. He produced quiet, light-filled landscapes and scenes of magical realism like this small tempera painting from 1931. 🎨 Jean Hugo. The Flight (Beginning of the End of the World), 1931
