    Painted Bride says farewell to iconic building in Old City
    This weekend, the Painted Bride will hold its 49th anniversary party, and it's likely to be the organization's last hurrah in Old City. The Painted Bride has been a cornerstone of the Philadelphia culture scene for almost a half-century, starting in a scrappy storefront on South Street and then in the 1980s, moving into a former elevator factory building in Old City.

About 50 community volunteers gathered at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office to be sworn into their neighborhood’s Youth Aid Panel (YAP) yesterday. YAP is a Juvenile Diversion Program that gives first-time juvenile criminal offenders the option of appearing before a panel of community volunteers, rather than entering the juvenile court system.

Tonight at 6pm is the opening reception of Motion Pictured, an exhibition of images and objects that personify the timeless activity of movement/motion in still visual art forms. The exhibit is exhibit co-hosted by @davinciartalliance to celebrate the anniversary of our film program's rebirth as @LightboxFilmCenter. From the perspective of traditionally static media (painting, printmaking, photography, and the like), the representation of movement has challenged artists throughout history. However, the birth of cinematography in the mid-19th Century marked a monumental turning point in how visual artists addressed movement in their work.
