    Philadelphia Struggles to Balance Historic Preservation and Equity
    As Jared Brey points out, there's been little perceived need to protect existing structures in a city that's been desperate for development for decades. Now, that may be changing, but making sure historic preservation respects communities of color and does not become a tool of gentrification remains a challenge.

"The story is related by the Narrator, a grownup version of the misguided Youth, with a distinct sense of irony... and a kinetic, eclectic score that ranges from gospel to punk rock." - The Philadelphia Inquirer

    'Passing Strange' at the Wilma: Updated, rocking tale of Youth's quest for identity
    Stew and Heidi Rodewald's "Passing Strange" at the Wilma Theater tells an often-told tale: The self-glorifying, distinctly unheroic artist-hero questing for his identity through changes of scene, sexual encounters that stop short of love, and the supposedly redemptive act of creation.

Nicholas Muellner, from in Most Tides An Island, 2017 Nicholas Muellner (Ithaca, NY) combines text and image in his book In Most Tides An Island (Self Publish, Be Happy, 2017). The book explores two distinct subjects, one documentary, the other based in invention, which converge unexpectedly. Muellner’s work witnesses the lives of closeted gay men in provincial Russia, while also composing the gothic tale of a solitary woman on a remote tropical island. “Shot along Baltic, Caribbean and Black Sea coastlines, distant landscapes met at the rocky point of Alone,” says Muellner, “From that vista, they ask: what do intimacy and solitude mean in a radically alienated but hyper-connected world?” On view, two exhibitions: By the Book Vol. 2: New Photography Publications and Collaborative Histories: Dieu Donné through April 21, 2018. By the Book Vol. 2: New Photography Publications is The Print Center's second exhibition dedicated to new photo publications and the artworks that inspired them. The exhibition includes books and artworks by Saleem Ahmed, Tim Carpenter, Julianna Foster, Nicholas Muellner and Public Collectors. http://printcenter.org/100/collab-histories-by-the-book/

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.
