Protest planned after second cyclist struck in Center City

...Friday around 10 a.m. when she was hit by a box truck on the 1200 block of Pine Street. The truck’s driver went to make a right turn onto Pine, which has a...

She is the second bicyclist hit in the area in three weeks. On Nov. 29,  Emily Fredricks a 24-year-old pastry chef was killed when a private garbage truck struck her on 11th Street near Spruce Street.

A protest is scheduled for Tuesday on 13th Street south of Pine where participants will put their bodies between the cycling lane and the driving lane – the area where protective barriers would go into place.

    Protest planned after second cyclist struck in Center City
    Becca Refford remembers biking through a green light, the flash of a truck turning sharply towards her and the rest is mostly a blur. "I went through the intersection and suddenly there was a truck," Refford, 24, said from a hospital bed Saturday. "I got super, duper lucky."

On January 31, 2018, the Rosenbach will host a screening of the classic horror film NOSFERATU, with live organ accompaniment by Frederick R. Haas. Conceived as a companion program to our Frankenstein and Dracula exhibition, this spooky cinematic event will give us a chance to experience another gothic monster in this critically acclaimed and beautifully visualized film--which, incidentally, is lifted almost whole cloth from Bram Stoker's DRACULA. This blog post explores the connections between the Stoker estate, the Rosenbach, NOSFERATU, and our unusual off-site event.

    The Destruction of Nosferatu
    On January 31, 2018, the Rosenbach will host a screening of the classic horror film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror , with Frederick R. Haas accompanying the movie on the organ at Macy's.

    The John G. Johnson Art Collection on Broad Street
    "There are still so many paintings on the floor, I just don't know where to put them," complained Hendrik Willem Mesdag to his art dealer. The artist/collector would soon solve the problem by building a museum next to his house in The Hague, exhibiting his own work with that of other Dutch and French artists.
