18th-century acting superstar David Garrick has a birthday on February 19; he would have been 401. Though he may no longer be a household name, Garrick is partly responsible for contemporary culture’s reverence of Shakespeare, as well as for the genesis of the Rosenbach’s Shakespeare collection which visitors may encounter while exploring of Dr. Rosenbach’s library.

Rittenhouse Square tower plan tweaked to add hotel-length stays and $2.5M-and-up condos

Southern Land decided to offer stays of as little as a few nights at a time in furnished units within the 48-story tower at 1911 Walnut St. in response to demand for hotel-style accommodations in the upscale neighborhood, development manager Brian Emmons said in an interview Friday.

The company plans to open a sales office in the coming months in nearby 1845 Walnut St. to market the 54 units planned on the floors set aside for condominiums, which are being marketed as the Laurel, Emmons said. Groundbreaking is expected by spring 2019.

    How can we use technology to connect people to the arts? Knight seeks ideas
    Sometimes it is hard to find the poetry in technology. Though most people use technology as part of their daily life, the coldness of machines makes it easy to overlook the richness of human culture that flows through their circuits.
