    LOVE Park? More like loathe park! Criticisms mount as JFK Plaza slowly reopens.
    On Thursday, city officials gathered at LOVE Park to dedicate the southeast corner as Bank of America plaza and garden in recognition of a $250,000 donation from the financial institution. Jamie Gauthier, executive director of the Fairmount Park Conservancy, had the honors of thanking and introducing the bank's regional president who would present the oversized fake check.

    Rapper Meek Mill walked out of prison Tuesday after Pennsylvania's highest court ordered him freed while he appeals decade-old gun and drug convictions. Following a five-month campaign by his supporters to get him out, the state Supreme Court directed a Philadelphia judge who had jailed him to immediately issue an order releasing him on unsecured bail.

    Politically Uncorrected: Why the GOP Gubernatorial Primary seems so crazy
    For many, national politics today seems bizarre. Indeed, viewed historically we are living through an abnormal moment, a chronically controversial president, deeply polarized political parties, bitterly divisive issues and an angry, frustrated electorate. But for truly aberrational politics, Pennsylvania is ground zero.

The way we see it, art goes beyond walls––it’s everywhere. In curating his collection, Dr. Albert Barnes gave us a fresh new lens to view not only art, but also the world. By arranging works according to color, light, line, and space, we’re invited to make unexpected and exciting connections between pieces from different eras, places, and cultures. Your perspective shifts: Colors seek synchrony. Diverse themes find unity. The effect is so inspiring, it stays with you––long after you’ve left our building. Come on in this spring! Discover why after every visit, you’ll never stop #seeingtheBarnes.
