Another great weekend can be had in Philly! Check out the new exhibit at the Franklin Institute "DaVinci's Workshop" with great interactive 3-d stations showcasing Leonardo's fabulous codices and brings his drawings of his inventions to life in 3-d. Also, on view is the recreation of the refurbishment of his "Last Supper". This exhibit delights all ages particularly those young at heart. Another gem is the Pennsylvania Academy of the Arts highlighting the recently-installed "Gross's Clinic" in their new contemporary galleries next to the original building. The buildings are beautiful and their collections spectacular. From Peale to Eakins to Bettye Saar and Nicholas Cave, they have it all. Another great institution in Philadelphia which is closeby and can be viewed on your way to lunch at The Reading Terminal, is The Fabric Workshop. A long-time honored arts facility with artist residencies that run from 3-6 months, The Fabric Workshops constantly exhibits high-quality collaborative projects between artists and the community. So, enjoy March! And, let the April showers begin for we all know May brings rays of sunshine.
