How has a father figure in your life influenc...

How has a father figure in your life influenced you? Our exhibition “Renoir: Father & Son/Painting & Cinema” unravels the relationship between celebrated filmmaker Jean Renoir and his father the great impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir. All throughout June, we’re sharing #Dadandme stories, featuring father and son duos in Philadelphia. Follow along! Meet Isaac Ewell, co-founder of OneHunted, a local tech-lifestyle brand encouraging men to be their authentic selves. Especially proud of his role as a father to his thirteen-year-old twin sons Che and Marley, Isaac shares how fatherhood has influenced his perspective. How has your dad inspired you? Isaac (Dad): Although my dad battled with addiction and wasn’t around a lot when I was young, I always saw him as a good dude. He was a calming force in my mom’s life. I pay homage to him by trying to be a good example to my sons. Che (son): He encourages people to see themselves as important, and that if someone else can be successful, so can they. Marley (son): He inspires me to do anything if I put my mind to it. He teaches me how to be different and tells me not to be mediocre. How have your sons inspired you? Isaac: I’ve always relished my role as a father. My sons inspire me to be better everyday. By better I mean learning to respond instead of react. How are you different and similar? Marley: My dad and I come from different backgrounds and have different personalities. He’s tougher. He’s more brave. We’re also both silly and love basketball. Che: We both really like shoes, basketball, and having fun with our friends and family. We’re both bossy. For the son(s): Jean Renoir spent a lot of time posing for his dad’s paintings. These long hours made them closer and introduced Jean to art and cinema. How do you learn from your dad? Marley: My dad taught me to always have good friends so you won’t be lost in the world. He says, “I’ll never go hungry and be homeless” because of his relationships. Che: My dad introduced us to basketball. He taught me how to spend my money wisely and always taught us that “expensive” doesn’t mean “the best. How would you give each other advice? Marley: Thank you for always being there and for telling us we can do anything. Che: Always keep trying, even if it doesn’t work out sometimes. Isaac to his sons: Don’t take yourself too seriously. Read as much as possible; it’s the only true path to freedom. Be grateful for the amazing life you have. Don’t make decisions out of fear. Advocate for yourself and others. Travel often.

    Philly library initiative encourages kids to run, climb and scale walls
    If children were to run, climb, slide or scale a wall at a normal library, they would likely get annoyed glances from patrons before being hushed by a librarian and carted away by their guardian. Certain branches of the Philadelphia Free Library, however, are encouraging kids to get active.

Does your birthday fall between June 21–July ...

Does your birthday fall between June 21–July 22? Here’s a little art inspired zodiac trivia for the next time you’re #seeingtheBarnes This pastel by Renoir depicts two nudes intertwined in a circular composition. One is teasing the other with a crab (presumably picked up from the surrounding beach)––a peculiar detail, which speaks to Renoir’s interest in antiquity. The crab motif can be traced back to Heracles’s battle with the giant crab Karkinos, a link that survives today in the astrological sign of Cancer. 🎨 Pierre-Auguste Renoir. “Two Nudes,” 1897
