Celebrate Wednesdays in November With Art and Cheesesteaks!
If you want to eat the best cheesesteak in Philly, you head to Geno’s Steaks. If you want to check out the finest art the city has to offer, you go to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The art museum is home to the world’s largest collection of Marcel Duchamp’s work and paintings from Paul Cézanne, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Camille Pissarro. Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers can also be found there.
In November, the museum offers a pay what you wish admission on Wednesday evenings from 5 to 8:45 p.m. Visitors can peruse the collections and grab a snack, tea, wine or beer from The Balcony Café. The museum also offers Dhyana yoga classes, gameplay with Jenga, free sketching sessions, and an inside look into art pieces from curators.
On November 8, 2017, the museum will host John G. Johnson for “A Curator’s Perspective.” The following week, “Creation Made Visible” will feature Mark Tucker and The Neubauer Family Director of Conservation, discussing a painter’s process through technology. These learning sessions are held in conjunction with current exhibitions at the museum.
If you are looking for an event for the whole family, a tree-lighting celebration will be held on Wednesday, November 22. The event will have tasty treats, live music, and the lighting on the tree, featuring one of the best views in Philadelphia. The event is free with the pay what you wish evening admission. For information on travel, parking, or additional details to plan your trip, visit the museum website.
To soak in even more Philadelphia culture, come to Geno’s Steaks for the best cheesesteak in Philly. Open 24/7, Geno’s is the perfect spot to eat before or after you visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Philly can get a little chilly in November, so be sure to pick up a sweatshirt from Geno’s Gear shop. There’s no better way to keep warm and represent your city!
