Come to Philadelphia for the arts. Stay to discover the city’s lesser-known contributions to American culture. It is the birthplace of the political cartoon and the rich history that followed, a hub of early American burlesque that led to Gypsy Rose Lee’s discovery, and a national model for public art with the country’s largest public arts program. Uncover the fun secrets, like where to score a free music degree, enjoy free orchestral concerts, and catch free circus arts performances around the city. And if you’re searching for a painting so gruesome it was once considered too offensive for display but now calls two museums home, this book will tell you where to find it.
Whether your interests lie in high culture or the underground, the magnificent or the macabre, fitness or food, or even just the casually quirky, 111 Places in Philadelphia That You Must Not Miss will reveal something new to everyone, even lifelong residents.
