At 12 p.m. on a weekday, it's pretty clear that the new, rebranded, fast–casual restaurant Dig has already made a great impression on Rittenhouse’s chicest residents. The very long line of eager lunchers snakes through the restaurant, passing an open kitchen and potted plants.
Ten artists sit in a line facing an attentive audience at Fashion District Philadelphia. They're here to discuss their artwork. One wears deep blue statement earrings, and another, cat–eye glasses—they all laugh over the holiday music playing in the background. Each of the artists is a contributor to the Streets Dept Walls, a collection of murals on temporary display on the Concourse Level of the Fashion District in Center City, which opened to the public on Nov. 18.
Recycling is a confusing process, and it's made all the more difficult by lack of insight into recycling policies and practices. Recycling is important for a multitude of reasons—it conserves natural resources such as trees and sand, and also reduces the amount of slow–to–decompose waste in landfills—all of which benefit the environment.
“So I’m a caretaker—we are caretakers,” states John Pollack, leaning forward in his cushioned chair. The grandfather clock that stands among the stacks of papers in his sixth floor office seems to stare as he raves about all the library has to offer, and explains his fascination with old books. Pollack is a curator at the Van Pelt–Dietrich Library Center, and more specifically, in the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books, and Manuscripts.
Shouts of “Onda, Onda!” rung through Iron Gate Theater as Onda Latina, Penn’s premier Latin dance troupe, presented the fall semester’s installment of their bi–annual showcase this past weekend. Onda Latina—affectionately dubbed “Onda” by troupe and audience members—has been performing since 1996. Founded entirely by students, the group's name translates to “Latin Wave” in English.
Philadelphia Eagles fans are definitely known for being passionate. The new film Maybe Next Year—released by Wavelength Productions at the 2019 Philadelphia Film Festival—is about these fans, and it paints a more nuanced picture of these Philadelphians. According to Jenifer Westphal, founder and executive producer at Wavelength, the film is an exploration of what “makes [Eagles fans] tick” during football season—specifically that of the 2018 Super Bowl win. Westphal, an Eagles supporter herself, acknowledges the terrible characterization of the fans—and yet she is staunchly opposed to the image. “Everybody in Philly, you know, bleeds green.” This devotion to not only the Eagles, but to Philadelphia, is something Westphal feels proud of—and it is the very essence of the film.
As the seasons finally start to change and the brilliant green of the flora on campus becomes the muted oranges and browns of autumn, a bit of extra color could serve as a pick–me–up for all of us. One of the best ways to add some life to a dorm room or brighten a friend’s day is with a well–arranged bouquet of flowers, and Philly certainly has plenty of options.
Let’s face it: Penn dorm rooms are tiny. This is only exaggerated by the fact that, more often than not, they are occupied by more than one person—which means more than one bed. There are only so many ways to organize such a small space before it becomes congested with belongings. As easy as it may be to grimly accept the the clutter, it's simpler than you may think to create a room with an intimate, cozy feel rather than a crowded one. Here are nine tips on maximizing a small space that can help to create the illusion of some extra square footage.
It's rare to find spaces in the bustle of today’s world that allow for uninterrupted appreciation of art in all its forms. So, when you do come across one of these spaces, it's difficult to forget. The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Friday Nights series is one such art haven. The series presents a new musician virtually every Friday night, drawing from the Philadelphia music community and beyond. The artists hail from a wide variety of countries, backgrounds, and musical histories, with classical jazz, Americana, folk, and Latin music among the styles represented. But the unifying feature of all the artists is their ability to create their own distinct ambiance.
