The final days of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's special exhibition: Henry Matisse and Modern Art on the French Riviera are upon us. Opened in December of last year, the exhibit is closing October 25th. Highlighting a vibrant collection of Matisse's paintings of France's sun drenched southern coast, the exhibit showcases why so many artists have been drawn to its beaches through the years.
While you're there take time to enjoy the richness of history, arts, and culinary experiences that Philadelphia has to offer. Spend the day in Philly wandering around its Historic District and sampling the gamut of eclectic dining options. Let your mind wander as you gaze at the inspirational art of the French Riviera and end the day with one of many theatre productions offered in the city.
Better yet, coincide your visit with the Philadelphia Fringe Festival going on from September 4-19. Encourage artists in dance, theatre, music, and various sundry. Tickets run from $10 up and you can visit their website www.livearts-fringe.org and find the right production for your tastes. An annual event that's not to be missed!
Just remember - A fun day is only an hour away!
