On The Philly Tip.
An invitation to the next Creative Council event, a book party for Creative Time alum Ellen Harvey, reminded me that I had been meaning to post a note about her show at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. About a month ago I visited PAFA to see the painting show and the Vik Muniz. They were installing the Harvey at the time, and it looked like it was going to be an interesting exploitation of PAFA's wonderful main building. From what I've heard it's lived up to my hopes.
Another PAFA/Creative Time connection was brought to my attention Saturday when I ran into Anne Pasternak at Phillips de Pury. She told me that Peter Eleey, Creative Time curator and producer, is speaking at an upcoming PAFA luncheon on November 16.
I know I've said this before, but I highly recommend an art trip to Philly that takes you beyond the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the ICA. Read about my last trip to the "6th Borough" here. For more up-to-the-minute and comprehensive guidance the best place to start is Roberta Fallon and Libby Rosof's Artblog. They rule.
