Museum, What's Up


July 25, 2014

HAPPY, HAPPY FRIDAY! Hello art peeps….time for At the Museum and today we’re going to the Philadelphia Museum of Art for our Summer Edition 2014. 

Opened in 1925, the museum has become a recognizable part of the city. We all remember Rocky Balboa running up those infamous steps in Rocky (76) and later the bronze statue of Rocky was briefly placed at the top of the steps, but was later relocated. Besides that, the museum is packed with lots of fun stuff.
