Today, November 19, is International Men’s Day. According to the WHO, average global male life expectancy is five years lower than for women, and the male suicide rate is three times that of women. This day aims to highlight health concerns that can affect men, and also aims to highlight certain social pressures that can negatively affect both men and boys. Check out InternationalMensDay.com for more information. This image is from a pop-up exhibit our Historical Medical Library hosted at last month’s Mischief at The Mütter event. This historical (not contemporary) pamphlet was distributed to boys with information about puberty, sexual health and more. How effectively have these issues been communicated to young men throughout history and today?

A great writeup from Hidden City Philadelphia on the Cret Illustrated Show hanging in the Hamilton Mansion. Come check it out at the opening tonight from 5:30-8:00

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.
