Philadelphia Stuff


An artful billboard in Center City. I took a lot of building pictures but only a few were worth keeping. Here is Thomas Eakins studio (and his art supplier).


And a nifty light in a lobby:



And a mysterious painting of chickens in the same lobby. It's very well done, I think it's Chinese and modern because of it's insecure location in the lobby, and the "English" name signing it, like a Starving Students art item. (The "students" often sell their paintings in hotels like this one to the public, and they are painted in China by very talented and very underpaid artists). Despite it's provenance, once can't help but wonder "why chickens"?


And last, K goofing around on the Avenue of the Arts...
