Statuary

Hey, I Shrunk Billy Penn!
This miniature, a model for the iconic statue atop Philadeldia City Hall, is in the Art Museum of Philadelphia.

Thinking Indoors
What's Joe Rishel, the Art Museum's senior curator (necktie and coat), messing about with Rodin's The Thinker? Turns out that as the forecourt to the Rodin Museum is being updated, some thinking had to be applied to our favourite Rodin statue. Also some wax -- as the statue will be cleaned while it awaits replacing on the Parkway after work is completed at the Rodin Museum. For now, Mr Thinker is in the Art Museum's Great Hall. (Not quite the right setting. Never mind).
