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

    From jazz and the jitterbug to assembly lines and skylines: the early twentieth century was a time of great social, artistic, and technological change. Artists responded with a revolutionary language of shapes and colors.

    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.

    New Regional Rail Proposal Would Connect Phoenixville To Philly
    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.
