Junto Staff Writer Bio
The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts are among scores of Philaelphia cultural organizations that are offering discounted admissions as part of city-sponsored 'Celebrate Arts and Aging' initiative for senior citizens.
The Phiadelphia Museum's discount applies to the upcoming 'Late Renoir' exhibit, to be held from June 17 to September 6. Instead of a $24 admission fee, the senior charge for those 65 or older will be $18.
At PAFA, the discount applies to its regular admission fee, reducing it from $10 to $5 for seniors 60 years or older. The discount will apply through May.
In both cases, the discount is coded ENGAGE 10, and this promotional reference needs to be mentioned.

New Book on Philadelphia Museum
Look for my book on the Philadelphia Museum of Art, scheduled for publication in January 2011 by WritersClearinghousePress.
Some of content will be drawn from my reports for Examiner.com and The Philadelphia Junto. Other original work will also be part of the book. Its working title is Legacy and Future: The First Hundred Years of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
