As President of the Alliance, I am new in town – just moved here from Detroit in January. To discover Philadelphia, I am exploring arts and culture of all kinds. Major productions, hidden gems. Tourist attractions and things only a resident would know about. Music, history, science, theatre, media arts, you name it. So let me take you on this journey with me. Every week, I will write reports of where I am going or what I have experienced. Come with me to find out what is inspiring, intriguing, thought-provoking, or simply fun.
