With $24 million parking lot deal, Goldenberg Group mulls Market East development

Eighth and Market is one of the most significant intersections in the city,” Seth Shapiro, Goldenberg’s chief operating officer, said in an email. “It affords, and even demands, a significant, sizable, mixed-use development.”

    With $24 million parking lot deal, Goldenberg Group mulls Market East development
    The development was once dominated by the original branch of the now-defunct Gimbels department store chain, which was demolished in the late 1970s when the store moved to the then-newly built Gallery. - Jacob Adelman, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News

Launched in January 2016, History Hub is an active community of researchers and experts which has become a game-changing way to provide access to information and diverse sources of expertise. You can learn more about it on the Archivist of the United States’s blog post, History Hub: A 21st Century Model for Archival Reference. https://aotus.blogs.archives.gov/2018/05/24/history-hub-a-21st-century-model-for-archival-reference/

    History Hub: A 21st Century Model for Archival Reference
    When the National Archives launched History Hub in January 2016, we hoped it would be a game-changing way to provide access to information and diverse sources of expertise.

This week, Mx. Rogers comes to the neighborhood.

    Philly's queer cabaret examines the truths (and myths) of Mister Rogers' signature kindness
    The first black-and-white frames of Morgan Neville's Won't You Be My Neighbor show the familiar Fred Rogers at the piano, coolly attempting to place value and meaning on his approach to communicating with children by way of modulation. As a trained classical composer, he knew that some key changes could be managed with ease, and others could not.

We are pleased to announce that The Wilma Theater is one of the recipients of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage's 2018 project grants. The grant will fund THERE, an ensemble-devised work, led by Blanka Zizka, which adapts Lebanese American poet Etel Adnan’s book-length poem 'There: In the Light and the Darkness of the Self and of the Other' and contemplates existential questions of personal and community identity and conflict, in an environment created by Berlin-based artist Rosa Barba. The work will premiere as part of the 2019 Fringe Festival. #PewArtsGrants
