"a grand yet intimate piece of musical theater" "a tour-de-force performance from Jamar Williams" "Several actors in PASSING STRANGE are part of the Wilma’s recently formed HotHouse, a troupe devoted to intense physical training and to new ideas about interpretation. This production brims with them." - WHYY #WilmaPassingStrange

    Review: 'Passing Strange,' and grandly
    Broad Street between Locust and Spruce streets Runs through Feb. 18 - Bold, boisterous, and bellicose, the Wilma Theater production of the musical "Passing Strange" seems much more real than it did on Broadway 10 years ago. And that's important: What's real or not is at the core of the engrossing musical.

If you’re curious about the history of science, you likely know Robert Boyle and his work. But Boyle wasn’t working alone: his published work refers to partners and collaborators. Or he’d publish their response to his ideas. But Robert’s most frequent and influential collaborator—his intellectual partner!—was his sister, Katherine, even though she never appears in his work by name. In this month's episode of Distillations podcast, learn more about Katherine Boyle: http://bit.ly/LadyRanelagh (Image: Chiara Ogan flickr: http://ow.ly/zkI630hPVuU)

Stick to Your Job Pictured here is a poster which encouraged employees to “stick to your job,” which encouraged workers not to drift from job to job because their dedicated work was vital to the war effort. This poster was produced by the United States Department of Labor and, like many other propaganda posters, was distributed to American factories in order to encourage workers to maximize efficiency for the war effort.

Join us for Citizen Archivist Week of Service! In the spirit of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, join us January 15-19, 2018 for a week-long citizen archivist challenge. Our goal is to tag or transcribe 2,018 pages in the National Archives Catalog during Citizen Archivist Week of Service. Can you help us meet this challenge? Get started by visiting the Citizen Archivist Dashboard beginning January 15. During that week, we’ll have a special expanded missions session and lots of featured records waiting to be transcribed. For our new volunteers, you’ll also find instructions on how to create an account and get started. You can help us unlock history by tagging and transcribing primary source documents in the National Archives Catalog. As you add tags or transcriptions to these records, those words are added to our Catalog – improving search results, and making our records more discoverable online. The added benefit is that we’re unlocking the sometimes difficult to read text for all to understand. We like to say that as we tag and transcribe, we are unlocking history. Transcribe and tag some of our holdings today, a handful of which are linked to below: The Indictment of Samuel Maccubbin involved in the Baltimore 'Riot' of 1861: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/278869 Deposition of John Snyder: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/18545806 Information provided by Lester Matz and John C.

Check out this Los Angeles Times article about our former resident, Kukuli Velarde. http://beta.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/la-et-cm-kukuli-velarde-review-20180113-htmlstory.html

    'Plunder Me, Baby': One artist's wild, defiant stand against the oppression of indigenous people
    As satire, Kukuli Velarde's work is both outraged and deliciously outrageous. The Peruvian-born, Philadelphia-based artist co-opts the forms of pre-Columbian ceramics to issue a postcolonial manifesto about identity and integrity. "Plunder Me, Baby," her show at the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, is withering one moment, wacky the next, and brilliant throughout.
