Join us on Wednesday, June 27th from 6-8pm for @Gregg Moore: Chef & Potter Moore will discuss his partnership with chef Dan Barber. They are exploring how plates and bowls can cradle the experience of eating, carry the weight of ingredients, bridge the story of the cuisine. Flavor is to food as beauty is to the plate. How can the partnership between chef and potter deepen? How deep are the commonalities between ceramics and cooking? These questions and motivations drive Moore to explore the relationship between agriculture, food, and ceramics and drive his research into historical, scientific, aesthetic, and collaborative discovery.

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.
