Happy birthday to Odilon Redon, born on this day in 1840. In his journal, published under the title A Soi-même (To Myself), Redon described his work as undefinable: “My drawings inspire, and are not to be defined. They place us, as does music, in the ambiguous realm of the undetermined.” 🎨 Odilon Redon. “Saint George and the Dragon (Saint Georges et le dragon),” c. 1909–1910

    Mayor Kenney never should have met with Meek Mill | Ronnie Polaneczky - Philly
    It's been a week since Mayor Kenney had a one-on-one visit with Meek Mill in jail. It bugged me then, it bugs me now, and I've finally figured out why. Throughout his political career, Kenney has been Philly's Jimmy from the Block, reliably reading the pulse of the populace when it comes to calling out the disloyal, the silly, and the abusive.

    PHOENIXVILLE, PA - Preliminary talks are officially underway to bring passenger rail service to Phoenixville. Developers are proposing two alternatives. The first option, which has been formally presented, involves extending the Manayunk/Norristown line into Phoenixville. Because the infrastructure for this line is already largely in place, it is the cheaper and quicker alternative.

Can you escape your father’s influence? #dadandme Opening May 6, Renoir: Father and Son/Painting and Cinema exposes the riveting relationship between celebrated filmmaker Jean Renoir and the great impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Jean’s artistic relationship with his father began in the studio: between 1895 and 1910, Pierre-Auguste Renoir made about sixty paintings and pastels of Jean, either alone or with his nanny, Gabrielle, or other figures. As an adult, Jean would remember sometimes enjoying and other times complaining about these long posing sessions, some spent drawing or playing, others demanding the wearing of uncomfortable costumes. But these hours in Renoir’s studio were ultimately precious for Jean, both strengthening his personal relationship with his father and initiating him into the craftsmanship and artifice of art. Be first to see the show. Celebrate at the preview party on First Friday, May 4. Book your tickets: http://bit.ly/Renoir-PreviewParty 🎨 Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Jean as a Huntsman, 1910.
