    Hygge: One word on how to embrace winter
    By Ms. Shayna E Brouker (IMCOM)February 2, 2015 I hated winter. Just over a year ago this writer hailing from the perpetually sunny South for most of her adult life moved from San Antonio, Texas, to Wiesbaden in the dead of winter. I arrived on a glum, typically German Tuesday morning, the sky awash with low, heavy clouds.

An update on The Rail Park: Check out our latest drone video in this post from our friends at Curbed Philly.

    New video shows that the Rail Park's finish line is in sight
    The trees have been planted and the benches and oversized swings have been installed. As the year comes to a close, the first phase of the Rail Park is close to the finish line, still eyeing a spring 2018 opening. That's the latest update from Center City District (CCD), which just released a new drone video of the elevated park.

Tonight marks the first night of Hanukkah. One of the traditional customs of this holiday is the playing of a dreidel game.

Why does Anthony have a crush on ILL DOOTS? “ILL DOOTS is my first ensemble. The members have changed. The sound has expanded. The explorations have shifted. Even the mission has evolved --- but the need to create has always driven us forward, that has not changed. No matter the shape and sound of ILL DOOTS the product never exists without full respect for the necessity of the process; each individual's process as well as the process of communing, listening, and collaborating together.” On December 15 come out to the Hothouse CRUSH Series featuring Ill DOOTS in the Wilma's Good Karma Cafe.

"Why don't I see myself in the art?" Grade school students can ask some pretty tough questions. We may not have all the answers, but we can start by making them feel comfortable raising sensitive issues. We want students to know that art is for everyone. Our Pre-K–8 education program helps make students of all backgrounds feel welcome by incorporating racially and ethnically inclusive teaching strategies. Our program also helps build visual literacy skills so that students may better interpret media within our image-saturated culture. Will you help us continue our work in art education?
