    Currently on exhibit at The Barnes Foundation, Renoir: Father and Son / Painting and Cinema, is a fascinating examination of the work of impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and the exchange between his work and that of his son's, filmmaker Jean Renoir.

Whether you love classical music, movies, or sports, this year's orchestra lineup at the Mann has something for everyone. 🎶🎻 https://bit.ly/2IPfVwe

    At the Mann this summer: Leonard Bernstein, Harry Potter, the Philadelphia Eagles, and what orchestras are becoming
    At the Mann Center soon, you'll be able to feel the death-chill of Harry Potter's dementors on the back of your neck as a live orchestra plays the John Williams score. On another night, you could happen upon a fresh Curtis Institute of Music graduate with a big piano personality in Gershwin.
